CAS[E] this Sketch #133

While I had that darling little leaf from Impress in my inky little fingers, I spotted my 'homework' for CAS[E] this Sketch #133 and BINGO!  See what you think of this darling from Gayatri Murali:

 
Actually, when I spotted/grabbed this little wood-mount from the shelf at Impress, there was a card already made showing it's possibilities - gee - I hope I haven't totally CASE'd it =\
 
Well, by now you might guess I LOve yellow with grey, so I feel Gayatri was speaking to my heart in her sketch - here goes:
 
 
My leaves are stamped on a panel of Ellen Hutson linen vellum, using the Impress Harvest Fresh Ink first with random stamping, then after drying [too impatient for pigment ink] with my heat tool, I stamped again using SSS Smoke dye ink.  The sentiment was stamped with Archival Black ink - it was a little birthday gift from SSS, their It's your Birthday sentiment stamp.
 
I know you'll make magic with Gayatri's wonderful sketch.  See you in the gallery - she writes with hope in her heart...
