Cascade Birthday Card

Fashionable Stamping this weeks challenge is "anything flora". I have been wanting to make one of these cascade cards for awhile and I thought that this flora challenge would work well for this challenge.

I used the directions from Beccy’s Place Blog to make the base of the card then I added my embellishments. I used a combination of handmade flowers, flourishes, leaves butterflies. It is hard to believe that this card flattens for mailing.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

  5. Judy, Your floral piece is just so Special and I bet it took a wee while to do as well. I did buy a cascade kit,but I have never got round to making it up.
