Flourishing Hydrangeas

Today I am sharing a  card with you that I have just finished creating for my Card Design Class tomorrow night.
One of the ladies asked if I can show them how to create a Waterfall Card, I had to do a little 'research' and this is what I came up with.
I have a tutorial ready to show you very soon.  I was pleasantly surprised how easy is to get this cascading effect.  I have used the Hydrangea stamp set from Flourishes llc it works perfectly as you can see from the following photos showing you the various steps of the waterfall.


The images have been coloured in using SU Chalks/Pastels and had 3D Kindy Glitz added to the centres for that sparkle.


The vintage lace is from my stash and the bling is from Want2Scrap, I don't seem to be able to create a card without adding bling these days - love the stuff!
This card is for the following challenges:
Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes!
