Elephant love

This is the Valentine's Day card for my youngest daughter using this week's sketch from Waltzingmouse. I had to sit and think for a while on how best to really stay true to the sketch as it really caught my interest! I cut out the window using one of the oval nesties and backed it with acetate so I could suspend the adorable little elephants. All the stamps are from "To the Moon" from Verve; look closely and you can see I stamped and cut out the moon from the set and adhered to the inside of the card so it peeks out the window. The last picture shows the little matching box I made to hold her treats.
