Just for Little Girls at My Craft Spot!

This is my second post of the day!
For the Blog Hop with a Difference, please click HERE or scroll down.

As promised, I am back with another post! :o) Today starts a new challenge at My Craft Spot and it's especially sweet: Just for Little Girls!

This coordinates perfectly with this month's I Feel The Love Project recipients. We are creating cards for Friendship Home, which supports and shelters victims of domestic violence and their children. I wanted to include a card for an especially tiny person, which this challenge is ideal for. :o)
The precious little elephant is from the Silhouette Online Store, as is the scalloped star base. For her ground I layered the floral border from the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set and Buttercup crinkle ribbon. (Ruffly sunshine is guiding her to brighter days ahead.)
The sentiment and elephant stamp are from Stamping All Around Spring, which I've cut out with the Tiny Doilies metal dies and popped up on a Tiny Doilies 2 base. I chose one that could be used for a birthday card or an encouragement card. I used Stone twine for the balloon string.

My papers are from Wild Rose Studio's Bluebell collection, which are inked with Dusty Concord. Victorian Velvet was used on the pink. I've been anxious to use this sweet little mouse paper... how cute are they holding their love letters? I hope it entices a smile from the little girl who will soon hold this. :o)
Thank you for visiting! I hope your day is filled with sparkles and sunshine. :o)
