Stamp TV Potluck Friday Challenge Sept 4

This week's Potluck Challenge involves adding one or more elements beyond the boundaries of your card base. You can go over the top like a tent topper, off the sides, and feel free to play with the card shape as well if that fits your theme.
This is my design for "Outside the Lines". I made a slit in one of the grids of this card and slid in a matching bookmark that goes over the top. Trimmed the grid so the finished card is 5" hi by 3 7/8" wide ...fits in envelope. Bookmark measures 5.25" hi by 2" wide and is laminated with Xyron. Top photo shows the bookmark out of the card..."a gift with card".  Both the card and bookmark are stamped on Confetti CS with a green CS mat.
Stamps: Gina K: Melanie's Inspiration Mosaic for mosaic, dots, and sentiments.        Gina K Elegant Flowers for the gold flower.
Hero Art bluebonnet stamp for the other flower.
Inks: Pumpkin Spice, Hint of Pesto, Eggplant, and Jumbo Java (Versamagic Chalk Inks).
Green ribbon on the punched bookmark is the finish.
Footnote added 9-11-09: My name was drawn as the winner of this challenge.
I was thrilled to win a Gina K stamp set. Chose Melanie's  " A Year of Leaves"
Thanks for visiting.
Have a good day.
