Card for a friend ....

This card is called a waterfall card. I got the tutorial here . I made this card for a special lady that helped me out lately. I don't want to give away any details otherwise it'll spoil the surprise.
I went away for ascrapbooking/card making weekend. I did a little scrapbooking but mostly cards. This card is one of them. I think if I make this kind of card again I'll have an easier time but this card took me probably close to an hour to make (can you tell I'm a little challenged in following directions on paper while chatting with girlfriends?).


Here's what the card looks like when the little string is pulled.

Recipe - Tart & Tangy stamp set, Artfully Asian stamp set, Old Olive ink, Real Red ink, Basic Black ink, Real Red cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, SU! Designer paper, eyelets, hemp twine and glitter glue (non SU!).
