Smelly Mondays

This giraffe just kills me he looks so ticked, sooo this is the sentiment I came up with to go with him. My son HATES getting up in the morning and Mondays are the worst so I thought this would be the perfect. The inside says "Stinky! Happy Birthday" 
I really like how the ribbon turned out. I originally used twine and decided the ribbon looked better. I've entered this into:
