Here is my creation for today using the Sketched Elephants Clear Stamps and Coordinating Sketched Elephants Die Set. 

I stamped the elephant, the party hat and the balloons onto Fabriano hot pressed Artistico Extra White watercolor paper using Versafine black ink. I colored them with my Clean Color bursh markers and cut them out using the coordinating sketched elephant dies. My card measures 4 1/2 x 6 inches. I cut out the circle on the left side of the card and adhered a piece of teal cardstock behind the front panel of the card. I then added the cut out images on top of it using foam tape to make them pop even more. The banners where cut out from matching DP and layered on top of each other. The sentiment is included in the stamp set and was stamped with Versafine black ink. To finish the card off I added a teal sequin and a few teal pearls.

Thanks for visiting and lease come back tomorrow for more inspiration
from the new Clearly Whimsy March Release!
