OCC....Over the Edge

Happy Saturday Peeps!!! 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week our hostess with the mostest is the fabulous Tui Nathan and she has another fun challenge for us:

This week the challenge I have for you is "Over the Edge" - 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 the edge of the card, for instance this could be a die cut element, a sentiment banner, a fussy cut image, ribbon etc. Push your design to the edge .... and have fun!

I wasn't sure about this one until I got a bit of direction from Tui,  just extend something over the edge, I can do that!!
I used some new goodies, the Stampin Up Mixed Bunch and matching punch!  I also used the lattice die. I choose to use Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler card stock along with some Whisper White. I originally was making a square card but decided to make it a standard size so I added on the bottom piece, it is hidden by the ribbon. It is 4-1/2 inches wide tho so I guess not really standard but with the leaves and sentiment flag off the edges it wouldn't fit in a regular envelope anyway.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge.
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Hello Vicki
You have placed two colours together that are rarely seen and it is a joy to see, I like anything that is different and this card is just lovely, all the elements come together beautifully.
