Elephant Baby Card [CFC42 and PDCC121]

The Play Date Cafe color challenge and the CAS-ual Fridays baby card challenge work perfectly together, and inspired me to make this elephant baby card.

I was so thrilled to find this great white fabric at a flea market last month ... for ONE dollar! There are yards of it, and it has the best texture, just like a cozy baby blanket. The ribbon is also vintage, and so super thick and silky. Any chance I get I buy antique or vintage - such great quality materials!

The dangling metal initial will be changed once I know the name of my cousin's baby. For now, it's an "E" for Elephant : )

I changed my mind on the outside of the card, so being resourceful and using what's left on my desk, I put the angel wings heart on the inside for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies used:
A Muse Valentine's Elephant Stamp
American Crafts Texture Stamp
PTI Double Ended Banner Die
Letter Stamps
Watercolor Pencils
American Crafts Pink Glitter Polkadot Cardstock
Alphabet Beads
Vintage Fabric
Vintage Ribbon
