A yellow rose for CASE Study Challenge #140

Happy Saturday to you!  A quick post today, to share a card I made for CASE Study Challenge #140.  Maile Belles is the May Muse.  I adore Maile's style, so I HAD to  make time to play along again.
Here's Maile's card.

And here is my CASE of her card.

Ahhh...this is one of those rare times when my card turned out exactly as I had pictured it in my mind.  Why doesn't that happen more often?
To create the layered rose, I stamped the image 3 times onto the yellow cardstock using Versamark.  Then embossed with clear EP.  I fussy cut the 3 layers, swiped my Versamark pad across the edges of the outer petals (for more color depth) and assembled them with foam tape. Oh, and I curled up the edges of the petals just a bit.
Thanks for taking the time to stop and take a look!

Cardstock: barely banana, sahara sand (SU)
Stamps: fifth avenue floral (SU), background basics: wrought iron, turning a new leaf (PTI)
Ink: versamark, onyx black versafine (Tsukineko), always artichoke (SU)
Other: clear EP (SU), foam tape (3M)
