It's Tuesday--Sassy Cheryl's Challenge

Happy Tuesday to you all.  Any Challenge day is a great day and Tuesday for me is Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.  The hostess this week is the super talented Judy who chose the challenge Use a Sassy Girl image for a Birthday card!!!  Here is what I created:

This image just cracks me up, it could be me a few, okay a lot of, years ago, knobby knees and all.  Now if she was dressed as a tomboy and not a princess it would be more me, but the attitude transcends clothing LOL.
I wanted to create a little gift box for a gift card or a few little trinkets so I created this Top Note gift box.  Here is a picture of the side view so you can see the box:

This was an easy project I found on SplitCoastStampers Resource Library.
The image called Prissy, Sassy and a Little Bit Jazzy was so fun to color and I think is perfect for a tween birthday project.  They are all that usually LOL.
The image took up most of the front so there was minimal room for embellishments.  I chose to use a cricut flower sponged on the edges and spritzed with glimmer mist, which of course you can't see in the photo.
The inside edge of the image was outlined with an Atyou pink glitter pen. 
A piece of 1 inch wide grosgrain ribbon ties the gift box shut. There was a slot punched in the top note die right inside the center point into which the ribbon was threaded so it would tie under the die close to the box.
This was a fun project and kind of nice to not make a card, Birthday boxes are fun to make and fun to recieve.

Be sure to stop by the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT members have created.
It is snowing here in Omaha and not supposed to stop until Wednesday, more of an annoying snow than accumulating, which my daughters in Kansas City and good friend Peggy are getting. Stay safe you guys!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
