My first cascade card

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed I've pinned several cascade cards recently. I've been quite in awe of how complex they looked, so I was quite surprised to find a template for one and realise it was just two pieces of wedge-shaped card, folded and slotted together.

I had some co-ordinated sheets of double sided card and had been wondering how to get the best from both sides of the card - a project like this looked perfect for them. Two of the sheets has a stylised floral design, so I decorated the lower tiers with flowers cut from the card and the upper tiers with butterflies cut from textured card to tone with the blue in the patterned cards. The scalloped border was cut from one of the cards.

I've decided to join in with two challenges that I am new to:

Daring Cardmakers where the challenge is Fly, Fly Butterfly
The Alphabet Challenge Blog where this week's theme is A for Anything With Wings.
