CAS(E) This Sketch #285

It's been a while but I finally had time to make a card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch.  Luckily my inspiration didn't desert me while I was having fun doing other things.  Here's the sketch I worked from.
Sweet Deepti of Dee's Art Utopia sent me one of her stamps that had been out of stock at Stamplorations forever.   I had to use it as soon as it arrived.
Using WPlus9 Cashmere as my card base I laid out the different rectangles, gray, white and vellum.  Placing the stamp in my MISTI allowed me to stamp on each layer individually, keeping it all aligned. The flowers on white are colored with Distress Ink and for the vellum I used matching Zigs.

It felt good to get back into the card making mode and although there are a few things coming up that may slow me down, I'm anxious to get back into the rhythm.  Speaking of slowing down, I am way behind on commenting on your blog posts.  I had over 500 at one time and have whittled it down to 300 but there are still a number of you who haven't had a comment in a long time.  While I might not comment on every card you made during that time (some of you are very prolific) I promise to stop in and do a bulk comment until I clear my inbox.

Thanks for dropping by.  I appreciate it when you do.
