Over The Edge

This is my second posting today and final one for the week. I don't play in my Butterfly Garden on the weekends because these days are reserved for family. So I'll see you, my wonderful blogging friends, next week.

Yup...creating cards has driven me 'over the edge' (wink)...not really....that is the challenge at Our Creative Corner.  The challenge is to create a card or paper craft item with a design element that is not restricted to the boundaries of the card edges and continues to flow off of the edge of the card. Fun, fun, fun...I love thinking outside of the box (or card as in this case).




The carnation image and sentiment are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp set, it was colored with Copic markers. The decorative edge is MFT and the grooves on the background were created with a Scor-pal.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden. (next week)

Oh Marie,your image on this card is delightful and you have coloured up well with the copics, something I struggle with....Love the lacey border for 'off the edge'.
