Over the edge - with CAS-ual Fridays

Hi!  I finally had a little time this afternoon to play along with CAS-ual Fridays CFC1061: Over The Edge challenge.  I love their challenges, but just haven't had the time to join in lately.  Here's the challenge.
In this case "over the edge" refers to an element that goes off the edge of the card front.  Well, that's something I love to do. problem!  In fact, I created a set of 3 cards for a family member.  I'll show you my challenge entry first.  Then, a little further down in this post you can see the entire set.

I popped up a strip of patterned paper along the edge of  my card.  Then a leaf die-cut, a sentiment strip and some "candy dots" from SU.  The final touch was to do a little faux stitching with a marker.
Here's a look at the set of 3 cards...thank you, sympathy & birthday.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
