Anything But a Card....

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from Ruby's Rainbow; this fortnight my teamie Jackie has chosen "Anything But a Card".  Sounds interesting, right?  The possibilities are endless!

At first I wasn't sure what to do, but I happened to find some fun little tin pails at Target's Dollar Spot.  I bought a few to have on hand and decided to embellish one and make a tag to match for our challenge.  It will be good to have on hand when a birthday party pops up.  The bucket could hold candy, nail polish, a gift card or all three!  LOL

I colored my little chick with pencils and cut her out with Nestabilities.  The tag is cut with a PTI die and I used Jen del Muro's July SFYTT for my layout.  I added a bit of ribbon, Baker's Twine and some brads.  The image panel is popped up.  For the pail, I picked assorted coordinating ribbons and tied them onto the handle.

Image: Stampendous Calendar Chick
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and American Crafts DP
Embellies: Assorted Ribbons, PTI Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine, Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI Tag Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will head on over to Ruby's Rainbow to see what the rest of the DT created for this challenge...I would love to see your "Anything But a Card" too!

I am also entering my project in the following challenges:

Die Cuttin Divas: Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday: Focus on the Ribbon
Twisted Tuesday Challenges: Free For All

Thanks for stopping by!
