Sprinkling Kindness with CASE Study

Hi and welcome to this week's CASE Study...which happens to be our last with super phenomenal CAS master, Maile Belles! Today's card came together fairly easily for me, thankfully, as I haven't had much in the mojo department lately so this was a welcome relief! Here's my CAS inspiration card followed by Maile's below:

When I initially added the flourish and the sentiment, though the flourish is beautiful...two words came to mind. B-O-R-I-N-G and E-A-S-Y O-U-T. Well, that's three words...but I wanted to make this not so much about adding a pearl 'sticker' and more about making it creative. That's when I figured I'd shadow the pearl flourish with some Black Onyx Liquid Pearls. It gives it just a little more oomph without being over done. (That's my hope, anyway.)
Here's Maile's card:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?
Here's the list of the other ladies' blog:

and our May Guestie:

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 CSC143), 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!
