Waterfall Card.

Time once again for Rudolph Day.
I haven't a clue where February went to.
If anyone knows let me know. 
I had a rummage in my to recycle Christmas card pile 
and found  this card front
and immediately  thought
Waterfall card (as one does!)
so with a further rummage in my stash
and a great tutorial  from 
here is my Waterfall Card.
The card front fully closed.

With the  first waterfall pulled down.
The sentiment is a self adhesive sticker from
Craft Creations Ltd 
which just happened to match the papers perfectly.

With the second waterfall pulled down
revealing fully the last picture.
Now that's what I call natty!

Inside of card decorated with remaining papers
and a further larger sticker.
I have had the design paper ( a magazine freebie)
in my stash  for ages as I thought I would never be able to use
because of matching up the colours.

Entering into the following challenges:
Rudolph Day. Make one Christmsas themed card. 
City Crafter #250 Use it up. (christmas card front & scraps of blue pearlised paper).
The Crafter's Cafe #105 Lots of layers.
Creative Knockouts #78 Lots of layers.
Brown Sugar # Anything goes.
Jo's Scrapshack #77 Anything goes.
Sister Act #95 Anything goes.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop # 166 use up your snippets.
