     Karen created this beautiful card with some serious elements going off the edge , like the huge ribbon and flowers and the diecut lace at the right side edge.Also she used more than 2 layers on her cardstock - notice the PP which is the 1st then the Doily underneath the cluster of flowers and finally the heart sentiment piece.This is one master piece !


    Before you start to wonder what is this ! let me tell you its a fully loaded Card!
    There are many layers on the cardstock with the tag and flower elements going off the edge !
    Just another super fine way to go for this challenge. 

    Shafaq went a fully fun way !!! The tag has so many layers of elements with the two hand cut and hand drawn mouse couple with a nice butterfly going over the edge ! That is just so cute !
     Here is my inspiration. I made a shaped card with a prominent flourish element going off the edge on the top. The PP and the sqaure frame with another PP and the image are all the layers i got on there. All the flowers are handmade. 

    Hope you enjoyed this line up !
    And hope this explains how you could do it.

Now let me walk you through the DT inspirations !

Our very own superstar DT makes a comeback with this lovely card this time !
I was shocked to see the 2 large birds they are so silver and so beautiful !
This girl just never does anything small scale , its always out of the box. 
Good going Bips !

Now here comes Shafaq with this superb CAS inspiration for you !
With the silver so prominent , i so want to have this card !
Dont u just love the glitter ?
Its really stunning !

Here comes Karen with an amazing frame ! I love that she used so much silver for the BG and the sentiment.
The clip holds a tiny congrats card in the center and we can add a picture to it later :) 
I really love the color scheme she used . 
The black really brings out the silver and the blooms are absolutely gorgeous !

Jovi's sweet and simple Star card is making my eyes shine ! 
Love the layering and the sweet bow . I couldnt have imagined purple goes so well with silver ... 
The card is made for a baby's arrival to new parents :) 
Love it


Nikita made this beautiful and subtle card with some silver embossing !
It blows my mind how the simple but beautiful card is showcasing silver as well as colors .
She has used watercolor pencils to color between the embossed chevrons. 
The vellum and embossed sentiment with the butterfly is just amazing !!

Here comes my inspiration ! I made a shaker card with a sweet Tilda inside.For the confetti i just added some pieces that are leftovers from the die cut i did sometime ago.
I just went ahead and added some kitchen foil to my background ! Silver is not really my color and i don't have anything silver except glitter , which i just didn't want to use. 
so i just embossed my kitchen foil :) and used it instead. 

Hope this inspired you to go out of the box with your creations 
and we hope you all will join us with lot more invovative ideas than this !
Cant wait to see what you come up with !
