Off The Edge

***This is my second post for the day.  Please click here to see my Create post!***

How cute is this tipsy little Christmas tree?  Clearly he's been testing out the drinks from some of my recent cards!  :)  I thought he was perfect for the CAS-ual Fridays Off The Edge challenge.  I never hang things off the edge of my cards although I admire it when other people do it.   I think it's because I'm afraid that whatever it is will be get crumpled.  I paper pieced this tree onto two layers of card though so hopefully the top of it will be sturdy enough to survive a trip through the mail!  



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Brown, Red) Bazzill Basics
Stamps:  (Tree and Sentiment) Woodware USA, (Squiggle from October 2011 KOM - Faith, Hope, Love...Live By It) Unity Stamp Co
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko, (Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso) Stampin' Up

that tree is so COOL, it reminds me of some of our christmas trees that haven't been secured properly and start moving mid way through december!~

Kirsty's comment made me remember our first Christmas as a married couple, when our 3 cats took out the tree several times...I can practically see a little kitty butt poking out of your card :) lol!
Maybe it's been watered with margaritas? That's a sin (wasting margaritas!!), but makes for an awfully cute card!
