Waterfall card

Good afternoon everyone! 

I hope you are all still enjoying the sunshine and hope you had a great weekend. I have been experimenting in the craft room!  I was actually blog hopping a couple of days ago and saw a waterfall card and was inspired and just knew that i had to have a go myself.  A few pieces of cardstock, some Alla Prima paper, a Hero Arts flower stamp and sentiment, a bit of Tim Holtz distress ink here and there and voila, here is my card. 

It is not the best card design to take photos of.  Obviously, it would be ideal to show you a video of it opening and closing and if i am brave enough, i will upload one later on tonight!  For now, i have a few piccies for you :)

Here it is as i start to pull the tag to open it:

This is it will the tag full entended and the sentiment printed inside on display:

And the tag back in its original position:
