Waterfall Birthday Card

This is for my niece who is turning 14 this weekend. I wanted to do something unique yet fun, and I think I found just the card. It turned out way better than I thought that it would. The pictures just don't do it justice at all. The cake looks so yummy, that my 13 year old DD said, "if it doesn't make her cousin want some cake and ice cream, there is something wrong with her." Hahaha! I love my DD! She is my big encourager on doing cards and I think my number one fan! LOL Either way, these waterfall cards are really cool and fairly easy to make, too! If you have never seen one of these, the ribbon at the bottom is to pull and it causes each picture to flip up to see the next one under it. 

What I used:
DCWV sparkle paper (LOVE IT)
Card Stock
Sweet Treats Cartridge for all my cuts of the ice cream cones and the cakes. 
The "charms", grommets and the back ground paper are things that I have had for so long that I don't even remember when or where I got them. 
Then I placed some Stickles on each of the charms (What is a girls card without lots of sparkle!)
I drew the "doodle dots" and "squiggly lines" around each pictures.  

 






Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a very wonderful day!
