Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone! 
I hope you are enjoying your day!
 It sure has been a beautiful weekend here in Minnesota~Can you believe it is mid July? Oh my goodness, this summer is cruising by SO fast. We always pack so much in and it just seems to fly by. But, we have to take advantage of our summers since it gets so darn cold here in the winter, lol!

One of Ayra's little friends has a birthday coming up next week. So, today I  have a cute little card to share with you using Peachy Keen Stamp set called Elephant Parade that I made for Arya to give her.  We are hoping to find circus tickets to add to the inside of the card to as part of her gift, if not.... then tickets to the zoo. Something fun for the little kiddo's to do in the summer :)
I have a cute little card to share with you using Peachy Keen Stamp set called Elephant Parade. I started with a white card base then followed with a base layer using papers from Authentique~Delightful collection. I cut a small panel and added a border using  My Craft Spot's Fancy Edges 2 metal die from the last release. I then wrapped some posy trendy twine and tied a bow.
I colored the cute little elephant with copics (which I desperately need practice with) and matted it onto a square that I distressed using the DIA. I added a couple fun skittles from my friend Carri'. The little doily label is My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies metal die and the sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's Simply Said stamp set.
I filled a cello bag with yummy bag of frosted animal cookies to go along with the card. The tag is My Creative Time's Just Tags metal die/stamp set. I stamped the sweet treats which is also from Craftin Desert Diva's stamp set called Simply Said.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #14 Linky Party Tags
2.) Craftin Desert Diva's Challenge #35 Linky Party Summer Time
3.) My Craft Spot Challenge #143 Birthday
