Mother's Day Cascading card

Over at Ginger Snap Scraps, the DT is posting Mother's Day inspired projects.
I recently saw a tutorial for a cascading card here at My Crafty Life. It looked fairly straight forward so thought I would give it a try. It was so easy to follow. The hard part was decorating it.
Looks Like a bouquet of flowers


When the card is flat to mail
I am pretty happy with how it turned out for the first time.
I am stuck on using these great papers from the Lawn Fawn Paper pack. Can't seem to get enough of them.
This and the twine from Twinery can be found in the Ginger Snap Scraps store.


I am also linking this up to the following...Hope you stop over at all these great blogs and join in.
