The item I chose was a Simple Stories 24/7 journalling block cut down from the 12 x 12 sheet. My inspirational supplies are not necessarily Simple Stories - it could have easily has been Echo Park, or Project Life. I like the different sized journalling blocks available for the pocket scrapbooking system that I have now adopted.
The colour scheme was determined by the Simple Stories 24/7 journalling block - dark grey, with splashes of gold, red and grey blue. I found the scroll die cut when having a clean up - I am very pleased to have used it here.
The rest of the card was mostly scraps; I have also used my Memory Box "puffy clouds" dies for the first time and added foam pads for two of the smaller clouds. The card didn't look right until I added more of the Doodlebug sequins that I have rediscovered lately - so useful for little accents here and there!
I added more dimension to the smaller flower by adding a middle from patterned paper, and then filling it with grey accent beads. Trying also to use up my hoard of rub-on alphas - they disintegrate over time, and it would be a shame to waste them.
Quite a different style of card for me - but I am very pleased with how it turned out! The card would have never turned out like this were it not for the 52 Card Challenge.
