April 1st, 2013 Happy Birthday Cascading Card

Amuse CS, flower nestie and butterfly dies, Sentiments from asst. stamps, pearls from my stash.

One of my besties Pat has a birthday this week and I made her this special card which I was able to hand deliver as she came over on Sat. for a couple of hours.  She always makes amazing cards so I was very happy with how this one turned out -  she was very happy with it and said she was going to "display" it all week as she is having a house full of company! She also liked the AMuse gift certificate that was tucked in with the card.  Her only problem was deciding what to order.  LOL - oh my what a tough decision to have to make.  This is the 2nd cascading card I have made and this one I made with an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of cardstock where as the other one I made I used a 12 x 12 piece of cs.  These are so much fun to make and even more fun to decorate.  Entered in Challenges:

Beautiful! It is another great example of how to use that style card. I love everything about it. Glad Pat did also.

Oooohhhh....it's even pretty on 'The Big Screen'! Girl, you SO outdid yourself on this one! This is so gorgeous - it's on the china cabinet, and I truly cannot walk past it without looking or touching! Ha ha ha...and you noticed that my order for one birthday stamp set ended up as 3 sets and 2 paper packs :) I'm hopeless... Thank you SO much, and thanks for letting me hide out on Saturday while the bug man was doing his bug zapping! Hugs....
