Card Challenge

Today I want to share a card I made for
 the monthly card challange at Technique Tuesday
 It is called a cascading card. 

 I almost gave up on this one.  The card itself is fairly easy to make, if you follow the directions on the site.  It was the decorating of the card that stumped me. 

First I made rosettes.  They didn't look right.  Then I used silk flowers, nope.  Then I found this paper that had these cute flowers and butterfies on it.  So I cut them out and made branches on my Cricut.  Then I tucked them in putting the larger ones in the back and taping the leaves behind them.  I added the little butterflies to the branches.  I think that is my favorite part.

Of course I had to add a verse to match the card. 
I think this one is perfect do you?I am sharing this over at Word Art Wednesday.
Have a blessed day.

First time for me seeing a "cascading" card, Carol! It has been while since I made a card, but must find out how to make one and try my hand at this! Love it. Just so full of cheer joy!

Hi Carol, came across your blog through Word Art Wednesday! I love your card. I love the sentiment and all the beautiful flowers.

I have also been admiring your lovely photos of Canada. They brought back a lot of memories. We had a family holiday to Canada in 2009 and we just loved it. Would love to go back!

I have become a follower too!

This is so cool. Love the shape of this card and the flowers in it.
It really makes me happy. The summer here in Holland is full of rain (bleugh). But this card makes me long for some sunny and warm days. Which I hope really will come here in Holland.

Thanks so much for playing along with us on WAW.

Such a beautiful explosion of colors. I'm not sure how to decorate the cascading card but I'll keep thinking and looking for inspiration.
