Off The Edge

There's a great challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays right now and 
the theme is OFF THE EDGE.  

I pulled out all my CAS-ual Fridays stamps and dies and had a blast 
playing with them. I decided to use a couple of oldies but goodies.
The Beanstalks stamp and die set and the Lotsalinks dies.

I love the retro looking die from the Lotsalinks die set and used it to create 
a textured background with each piece looking like it's going off the edge. 
I decided to break it up with the stamped vine that also flows off the 
edge of the paper.

 I colored the flowers with Prismacolor pencil crayons and added them to 
the card with some craft foam. I stamped the sentiment with black ink 
onto vellum cardstock and then heat set with some clear embossing 

I placed it onto some basic gray cardstock with some craft foam to add 
some more dimension.

Hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog and check out the challenge. 
You've still got a little time if you want to play along.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
