Shadow Stamping and Far Away

The One Layer Challenge at Less is More this week is to use shadow stamping, and the theme for Addicted to CAS is 'Far Away'  so once again I have combined these two challenges with my card this week.

I have used the very familiar stamp 'Regarding Dahlias' by Stampin' Up! (but the first time for me!) stamped in Memento Morocco, and with masking, stamped again without re-inking above and then after inking and stamping off, below.  Because of the masking, it was not possible to obtain a good image if I didn't re-ink and stamp off for the second 'shadow'.  I needed two dahlia masks to add the leaves, and the sentiment is by Simon Says.  I love flowers, and remember that when someone special is 'far away' a lovely flower is always comforting.
