CAS(E) this sketch #17

I've a sick child at home so while he sleeps I had a chance to get an earlier than usual start of the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

As soon as I saw the sketch I thought of using my PTI Star prints stamp set. I'd hoped to use the square from framed out #1 but it was just too big so having to rethink sent me to the Postmarks set for the stamp image and from there came the rest of the elements.

I'm happier with this card than I have been with any of my previous attempts at a CAS style. And it came together much more quickly which perhaps means it was less forced than the previous efforts.
