CFC 75 -- Over the Edge

Here is my submission for the CASual Friday Challenge # 75 -- Over the Edge.  The card should have an element extending over the edge of the card base.



Looking at the submissions so far, I saw a lot of butterflies and hearts, so I wanted to try something different, more graphic.  I also wanted to use my new Hero Arts Neon inks. So this is what I came up with. I fussy-cut the pink flower to hang over the edge. Fussy-cutting is a technique I quite like -- I think it gives dramatic results, but I don't use it much because I really don't have the patience.

If you like the sentiment to be vertical, you could also present it this way:




And here's a close-up:




I'm pretty happy with it. We'll see.
