CASE Study...Deepest Sympathy

Welcome to this week's CASE Study challenge! We're into our second week with the incredibly talented Maile Belles! When I looked at Maile's card, I knew that I wanted to CASE the flowers and the sympathy theme and it just so turns out that Verve peeked a new Plain Jane yesterday called Deepest Sympathy. Here's the card that I made using this new stamp and a big ol' fat flower:

I had a vision of making an all white card, which is not really possible since you can't see white ink on white paper. ") The paper flower was enhanced by adding a pearl spray and Whimsy die cut behind it. I then attached that to a Birds and Swirls Embossed panel and matted that to the card base. The sentiment was made by stamping the Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane onto a white panel and matting it with a border punched top and bottom. Pretty easy...

Here's the down-low on CASE Study's challenge:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC140), and link it to the CASE Study blog with the inlinkz widget. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose authors of the four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!
