Cascading Card with Sparkle

I really enjoy making construction style cards as it challenges me to use my brain a lot more than a standard card base and gives me so much satisfaction to say to myself “I did that”!  My girlfriend Vicki came over with the Destructions and we made one each and it’s hard to see in the first photo but I found some cardstock in my stash that was white one side and a coral pink on the other side, so it looks rather tricky! This adorable little angel I used is from Whoopsi Daisy Digis and I generously added some glitter which you can see in my second picture, she “Shines like the top of the Chrysler Building”!!!!!! I ended up creating a whole garden behind her with cascading leaves and flowers everywhere. Then to make sure it was extra sparkly I used a mountain of Bling and splashed it everywhere!! I can now say with conviction that leaf die was an excellent investment towards my stash, and lately has had a serious workout!!!

This is the first chance I've had to visit in a bit. I thought this card was FAB when you posted it to the DT and then the blog, but I'm so glad that I've come visiting because it shows up so much better here on your blog with all the different views. You did a FANTASTIC job with the construction and detailing of this little gem of a card. Well done, teamie!
