Congratulations Challenge

While it is Sunday, I didn't do my normal hill bike ride.  I wasn't in the mood to do some hill climbing, as it will be a busy week with lots of extra tennis practice. However, did a good ride this morning and logged in a pretty good 15.9 mph--though not my personal best for this route.  I did a bit of yard work when I got home---boy this drought is making my normally beautiful garden look tried and dry!!!

It is time for another challenge with CASE this Sketch #129.  Here is the graphic.  There are so many possibilities with this simple yet elegant sketch.

This simple design allows for some quick card making that looks like it took hours to make.

Here's my take on it...

I started by stamping my flower image with Versamark Ink, then heat embossing it with white embossing powder on watercolor card stock.  I used Distressed Ink to watercolor my flower.
I stamped the congratulations sentiment with pigment ink to make it look like part of the flower.

A clean and simple card that I will send to my friend Nanette who just got a new job at Hawaiian Airlines---Congratulations Nanette!
