Birthday Elephant

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Camp Create Wonderful Watercolor challenge over on the My Favorite Things Blog.

I used this cute elephant and balloons from the BB Adorable Elephants stamp set.  I cut a panel of watercolor paper and then used some distress inks and water to create the inky background.  I stamped the elephant and balloons on watercolor paper and then used distress inks to color them.  I diecut them using the coordinating Die-namics BB Adorable Elephants.  I diecut the sentiment with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  I adhered the elephant, balloons, and sentiments using foam dots for some dimension.  Then I added a few sequins to give my card some sparkle. 

Yay!!!  I earned the Wonderful Watercolor badge! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs, Anita
