Hello.......

Update...Winner of the CASEplorations challenge with this notebook cover-Thank you x
I've made a cover for my notebook, that I keep crafting notes in.....
I enjoyed the inspiration, from Laura 
for blending the coloured embossing pastes onto the stencil.
I did the same technique on the left hand side of the cover.
The link will take you to her blog for more information on how she did this....HERE

On the right hand side I blended the distress inks onto the card, 
then put white semi-opaque embossing paste through the stencil, 
so that the paste absorbed some of the distress inks.
I fussy cut a leaf, edged it in black and popped on the die cut embossed sentiment.
The leaf has been popped onto foam for dimension.
There is thread at the back of the sentiment, like Laura's.
I finished with a few sequins and attached it to the front of my note book.
I enjoyed CASEing Laura's card and learnt lots along the way.
