The Technique Lovers' Challenge (TLC318) was called Follow the Edge last week - trim the front right-hand edge of the card so you can see the inside.
I stamped one of my favourite stamps on white cardstock, coloured some of the flowers with Prismacolor pencils, trimmed the right edge, attached it to blue cardstock and trimmed the edge again, leaving a little margin. Then attached it to the square white cardbase and trimmed the edge flush with the blue margin. I stamped Thank You on the inside edge of the card so it shows when the card is closed. It cried out for something to balance the image so I added three blue/grey pearls.
It was a great challenge as I'd never done that edge technique before and I really like the results so I will do it again.

Very nice card susanbri. I love the blue shadow along the cut out of the flowers you stamped.....and then coloring only a few of them is very striking. The little pearls add just the right touch. Awesome job!!
