A waterfall for spring

Water, water everywhere...... Some of the waterfalls here in the UK at present must be looking pretty spectacular. But that's not the kind of waterfall I'm talking about - today I have made a waterfall card  from the beautiful Design House CD "Meadow's Edge".  But I decided to make it a waterfall card with a difference - I've hidden it behind the top flap of a tri-fold card, so that the recipient thinks they have received quite a simple card and gets a surprise when they open it up!

The backgrounds and the waterfall are all from the CD. I added a Craftwork Cards greeting on the outside and stamped the inside with a sentiment I bought from Raindrops on Roses in the USA many years ago. Some tiny dragonfly brads hold the waterfall mechanism in place.

I'm playing along with

  3. It's me again taking a peek at your lovely card. Looks like the 'Meadows Edge' CD is going to be added to my wishlist if the rest of the images are as delightful as the ones you've chosen for your card.
