CASE-ing the Catty Artistic Expression - CTC43

I have had this stamp set for a little while but it has not seen ink until I made this card, it uses a technique I don't do very often emboss resist as it usually is used with a lot of vintage design cards which don't come naturally from me.

You may have come from Julia Quinn or you might be starting here, but don't forget to hop to all the posts as you will love what everyone has designed this week.

I changed my card from the square one featured below to the normal C4 size so I can include it in a standard envelope.

I randomly stamped in Versamark and the embossing in clear embossing powder and with a little sponging in Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Island Indigo which I blended them all together.
