Sweetest Fairy Princess Elephant Ever

Here is a gift box I made today with my new favoritest stamp ever!  It's sooo girly :)))

Totally cute, right?  Here's a close up of her. 

The stamp set is called Make a Wish and comes with a wand, tierra, and the words Girl, Make a Wish, Birthday, and wishes.  I love the Humphrey line not only because they are so dang cute, but there is no hair to stress about. Lol.  (Man I wish I could figure out how to color black hair w/ markers!) 

She is colored w/ Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and I used Icicle, diamond, and Fruit Punch Stickles to give her a little sparkle.  The gorgeous pink Sparkle cardstock I used for the background has been in my stash for ages and I have no clue who makes it.  Same with the grey ribbon.  I used my Grand Caliper to cut out the center square shape on the lid and added acetate behind it using regular tap.  (You can get acetate sheets cheap at Joanns).  Then I attached the image under the clear acetate using tape as well.  I made the box in just a couple of minutes using my Boxer Board.  I scored at the 2 inch mark so the box measures 8 inches across.  You can find directions on how to make this bow here.

I am entering my gift box in the following challenges:
