I am sharing a valentine I made for my college sophomore daughter. I used Elephant Peeker, Picket Fence Border, and the Scalloped Doily for my dies.
My little elephant is a girl, so she has painted her toes pink! I hand cut the little tag, punched a hole, and added a little stamped sentiment ("a happy hello") from Stampin' Up!
The Sherbert Satin Ruffle ribbon and Raspberry Baker's Twine are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Check out the THREE DAY SALE going on at Really Reasonable Ribbon right now! The felt flower is by Bride's. Oh do I love pink~!
My sketch is based on Deconstructed Sketch #83:
My daughter lives 700 miles away, so I hope this little sweet elephant brings her some sweet love and cheer in her mailbox!
