Casing Myself!

Good morning everyone.  To start off with anyone who has ever left me a comment and received an email notification "no such address", I have finally fixed the problem.  I didn't even know I had a problem until someone told me.  Thank you Tui!

My card for today is another Thank You card I made for my neighbor.
Here is my card:

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Autumn Days (this is one of my Favs!)
               Because I care (sentiment)
Paper:     Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, 
               Sweet Pea DSP (retd)
Ink:         Early Espresso
Other:     Square Lattice EF, dimensionals

The title of this post is "casing myself" because I used a sketch I had previously used when I made this card:
I remembered this layout and just knew that it would work for the pheasant stamp.  See, you don't have to reinvent the wheel.  At least I keep telling myself that, lol!
Technique Tips:
     -  I sponged around the center image so it didn't scream "WHITE"
     -  After looking at the end result, I think my sentiment should have been on white paper also.
     -  Instead of using ribbon, I just cut out more Early Espresso cardstock and used that for my ribbon.  Eazy Peazy!

That's it for me.  Hopefully, today, I'll be able to get started on my Splitcoast Sketch challenge.  I have something in mind!  And don't forget, please leave me a comment on my blog.  Not only do I enjoy reading them, but I'll definitely receive notification and you won't get a rejection email!
