Off the Edge theme challenge no 428 for MTTC blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm Becca S the creative dynamo and MTTC has a very good challenge theme for you during the next two weeks. The theme is "Off the Edge". Our design team crew have come up with lots of variations for what it means to go off the edge of the card.

For my design team inspiration card  for #428, I folded the cardstock base to be shorter in the front to allow for the semi-circle of pink cardstock to be added plus have the large journal card extend off that shorter front down into the pink half-circle. My mom's going to be surprised that her Mother's Day card has been made early! (A positive out of all this Covid-19 scare.)

You Are Awesome-ness, mom=
