Happy Spring Waterfall Card - an SVGCuts DT project! and my $5 Gift card winner!

My spring card was posted on SVGCuts blog today.  I had super fun making this one, mainly because of the cheerful colors, and I got to use my beautiful patterned cardstock from Echo Park "Springtime".  I always try to put some sort of twist to my projects - not always, but I try - to make it more fun, and innovative.  So here, I took the popular Waterfall Card SVG Kit (which almost made it to my top 10!) and instead of putting the waterfall feature on the front, I put it inside the gatefold card. 

Here it is!

Here's the front of the card, all tied up with a pink gingham ribbon! And, when you open it...

It's a waterfall card!

Don't you just love the wrinkled up ribbon look? and I just love the branch and the bicycle!

Funny story here - I had this beautiful "spring" stamp and I had planned it all along to use it here.  Then, when I went to use it, I just kept getting an image with a portion missing!  Then I had realized that my stamp had melted...  anyway, I took individual letter stamps that I had to form the word "spring."

My waterfall card feature...

 You pull down the tab, and you see an umbrella!

 You pull down more, then it's a nest with eggs and a pretty daffodil!  I used glossy accents on the raindrops and the egg.  Makes it look so pretty!

Well, if you are interested in getting the dimensions and all the pretty cuts that I've used, visit SVGCuts blog, and it's all there!

Now, onto my $5 giveaway!  Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on my last post!  It was so interesting to see what everyone's favorite collections were.  The 3D flowers and the explosion box kit got a lot of points!  They really are all must-have files, so make sure that you get them before the 25% sale ends tomorrow!

I have all of your favorites except the explosion box and I have 20 or so more!!! It is VERY hard to choose a favorite and a lot depends on the season too. Humm.... I use a great deal from Moonlight Garden Party, Afternoon at Auntie.. and/ but the very most from My Happy Garden. OK...only because Spring is in the air, I have to choose My Happy Garden.
