Today, we are featuring the "African Veldt" stamp set:
For my card, I wanted to spotlight the wonderful elephant stamp in the "African Veldt" set.  I stamped the elephant onto white card stock, cut it out with a Spellbinders wonky squares die, then colored it with Copic markers.  For the background panels, I used the Ambrosia paper pad by Basic Grey. I stamped the solid elephants onto the lower half of the card and added a piece of orange fiber to complete the card.

Be sure to join us tomorrow for Day 3 of the blog hop!
