Cascading Bird Song

 Hi Stampers,
This is what I did today!! I also spent some wonderful time with my daughter getting our hair done and going out to lunch!
I have been seeing a lot of these Cascading Cards on Pinterest and I had made one years back, but thought it needed to be done again.  Boy was it fun! Here is a link to a great print out of how to make the card. I had a hard time getting going, I didn't know what I wanted to do with it.  I used a piece of Authentique Paper and made the base.  Then to decide what to do with it!  I love the new stamp set Bird Song (it should be available real soon!) so decided to use that.  For the flowers I used Spellbinders Itty Bitty Flowers dies and Copper Memories Mist with a Dew Drop in the center.  Then I decided to stay with the copper theme and embossed the butterfly with two layers of Copper EP, then stamped with the feather with Versamark directly on top of the Copper and embossed with Native American, I love the outcome! (I love copper and turquoise together)  I put a strip of 3/4" Tear-ific Tape across the bottom and covered it with Bronze Splendor Glitter. 

 Then I just started embossing the different images in the set with the Native American & Copper EP and cutting out.  You can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.


 I did the same technique on the bird here as I did on the front butterfly.  For the nest and eggs I spritzed a cardstock with the Copper Memories Mist and embossed with the Native American.

 I love the arches with the butterflies!  I used my new Botanicals die from Spellbinders and hand cut out some of the swirls for that back piece and behind the nest.
 I stamped and embossed all the sentiments with Copper EP.
I hope you enjoy my card as much as I am. 
Have a great weekend!
Jill
