Flourishing Phrases Thank You

I love participating in our team challenges that happen every two weeks or so.  They are a fun way to exchange and swap ideas.  Each time there is a new theme which could be a colour challenge, a sketch or something topical, such as using new products.  This time it was something a little different because a CASE challenge was set.

When you CASE a project you can Copy And Selectively Edit.  Take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set, the colours, the layout or the flowers.  Whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.

The challenge is to CASE our incredibly talented Team Leader Bekka Prideaux.  The project (above) she chose for us to CASE is awesome with lots of elements to take inspiration from.
I chose to follow Bekka's sketch.  I stamped the beautiful flourish stamp a couple of times using Veramark ink on to Thick Whisper White card and then white heat embossed the image.  Once the image is heat embossed it acts as a resist to the Pool Party ink (I know it is one of Bekka's favourites!) that was sponged over the surface.

The flourish is decorated with either some die cut flowers or little punched flowers, from the Tree Builder punch, that are topped with small pearls. I chose to use the 'Thank You So Very Much' sentiment, although the stamp set contains lots of other useful sentiments too.  I've used my trusty Triple banner punch to create a neat finish to the ends and used strips of ribbon as another accent.

Which element would you CASE?  Happy Crafting!
