WATERFALL OF HOPE

Happy Friday! The FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE this week is to make a card that moves.  I had never made a waterfall card before and thought I would give one a try. 

Initially I thought to make this a B-day card for my sis but it was brought to my attention that someone could use a card of encouragement so I changed course a bit with the sentiments.  The little girl from the BUDDIES SET was perfect for this one.
I always wanted to try a waterfall card (you pull the ribbon and the layers unfold sequentially) but was intimidated cause they looked complicated.   
It turned out to be pretty easy though and I am sure to make lots more of these fun cards.  Click HERE for a tutorial that I found to be helpful.
 Such a fun card to play with and  you can use any kind of shape. I have seen them with ovals, stars and squares also.
Soooo you've got to move it, move it on over to TGF and  make something that rock and rolls!
Have a great weekend!
