Less is More Challenge - "Off the Edge"

This card is for the Less is More blog's current "Off the Edge" challenge (make a one layer card where an image actually goes off the edge of the cardstock).  WHOO HOO for me!!  I did it!  All the images with the exception only of the sentiment go off the edge of the card. I've been struggling with the challenges from this blog and have been getting gentle reminders from Chrissie and Mandi to work on my "white space" and this time I actually accomplished it!!
Look at the fabulous A Muse Studio goodies that make up this clean & simple beauty.  The new inks are awesome.  I've never been a big fan of pigment inks in the past but these inks are so easy to work with and dry to a chalk finish in only seconds!  I've been converted!! 
The colors are courtesy of the Wplus9 Color Challenge (grey, yellow, green and white) - This is the kind of card that I can see myself making for gift sets with a variety of sentiments.  Did you see the A Muse Studio Essential Sentiments stamp set in the picture?  Crammed full of sentiments - there are a few that I will be using over and over again!  If you want to order that set, look at the catalog or book a party contact me at - msmathey@gmail.com
