Sending Smiles - Double Trouble Challenge #67 "Off/On/Over the Edge"

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge "Off/On/Over the Edge" using Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch #476.  The sketch itself shows how you can simply use a doily off the edge or partial stamp on the off the edge circle.  But, I decided to use one of Jennifer McQuire's tutorials veering away from my comfort zone and create something off the edge using stamps and dies.  

Off the Edge Die Cutting
Partial Die Cutting
Off the Edge Stamping

Using this Sketch, Feel free to change the orientation... rotate or flip the sketch or use its mirror image.  

Many of my cards are done with lots of layers for dimension; but decided to keep my design simple and use stamps directly on the card base using different inks and pens to pull it all together. This card took me longer to create than throwing a lot of layers together; but I was happy with the result... but don't know how soon I will create another one layer CAS card.  

Time was taken for cutting out images for masking, coloring and trying to keep within the sketch layout.  Thought I was done until I brought out my clear Wink of Stella.  A design sheet was added to the inside of the card
