Hi Everyone,
I am showing a card that I just learned to make this evening at club, Thank You Trish.

This is known as a Cascading Card and it's my 1st attempt. I am ready to try another.I have to get this better looking.

I added 2 arches to be able to attach more items of interest. However from this angle the back arch looks like a handle.The one towards the front is lost. This card design, in my humble opinion, is difficult to photograph. And as I was getting this post ready at the 11th hour, I really didn't have time to redo, etc. So I am sure you will see me do another one of these soon. Sorry to sound so negative on this post, I will be making another and hopefully it will be better.

Supplies I used:
Stamps - Art Impressions I-2529 mini memories background, E464 Thanks,F2520 Margaret, E2518 Helene Profile, G2642 Mini Ladies Hat
Card stock/paper used - Green CS, Green Designer Papers, White CS
Inks used - Distress Ink Old Paper, Gathered Twigs
Butterflies were given to me
Spellbinders Dies - Labels Sixteen S4-301, Labels Seventeen S5-025,Scalloped Circles S4-115 & S4-117

Stop in tomorrow for my Thursday post spotlighting the weekly Art Impressions challenge.

Great card! Two of the girls on my project development committee for my paper crafts club both brought samples of this cascading card to our last meeting!!! We can't wait to try it out.
