Card Creating Tuesday - Sketch

Hello all my crafty friends!!
Today is the last week of June, and my
final sketch.  Let me tell, you this one had
to be the hardest!!  When I saw this sketch, I thought
OMG, I have to make a waterfall card!!
Well I have never made a waterfall or for that fact
any other special type of card. (easel, gate fold, etc.)
So what was I gonna do???  Well to the web of course!!
My first and only stop was Splitcoast Stampers.
If you have never been to this site, you need to check
it out!!  There are all kinds of tutorials.
Here is the one that I used:
At first it looked intimidating, but it ended up being pretty easy
and I am thrilled with the results!!

Here is the sketch:

And here is a sneak peek of my card!!

These sunglasses were cut at .70" from Forever Young.
I added some gems in the corner and
glossy accents to the lenses.

Next, the bathing suit was cut
from Nifty Fifties at 3.40"
I placed each piece on a seperate panel.

Lastly the flip flops are from
Life is a Beach cut at 2".

All the paper except the card base is from
my scrap pile.  The adorable paper used on the
card base is Imaginisce Makin' Waves.
This paper is so cute, and I was lucky enough to
recieve a few sheets, in a recent order from
The sentiment is from K Andrew's Splastastic Summer
I stamped it on to A Spellbinders Classic Large Square.

Here is a quick video showing the action!!
Boy is it hard to record with your phone and
pull the tab on a waterfall card...LOL!!
(man my hands look old...LOL)

I hope you enjoyed my card as
much as I enjoyed making it!!

Please be sure to stop by
to see what the rest of the design team made today!!

I have never tried a waterfall fold before it sure looks like a neat one to try. So many options for each flap. Perfect for any occasion.
