Journey .....

This is my second post today...
I really want to participate in a challenge that is ending shortly....

 City Crafter is Celebrating their Sixth Birthday!
Their challenge is to CASE a card from the Design Team...
I have attempted to CASE Ros's card.....CASE Number 3
I am a big fan of her work and I think it's wonderful to get the opportunity 
to 'Copy/CASE' her card x
So here's my project.....
and Here is Ros's card......
My starting point was the mesh looking metal behind the image.
I die cut the the distress collage die from Memory Box to represent this.
The background has been blended with blue distress inks.

I was inspired by the die cut leaves, so using Memory Box leaf dies 
I cut them out of black card and vellum.
The flower is a two part die, also by Memory Box.
I die cut the line flower twice, to use as a stencil.
The embossing paste has glitter in it for a little bit of bling.
The background has been splattered with water.
After assembling the card I finished off by stamping 
the sentiment and popping on a few sequins.
The reason that I made a notebook was that I will be going on holiday in May 
and wanted a notebook to take with me.
I love the textural feel of it and I know it will get bashed around a bit but that's OK with me.

So glad I was able to CASE the card and make the notebook out of it...

Looks like you're on a roll again Mac and you'll definitely have the best looking note book on your holiday! The sentiment couldn't be more perfect for a travel journal. It's a wonderful CASE of Ros's card but still has it's own personal feel, I love it :) X
