Formatting MS Teams Bot Approval Message

I have an approval flow that sends a message via the flow bot for approval. I want to format the card just simply to make it easier to read. I can't get it to give me a line break. I've tried markdown using the MS guidance but can't get it to work.

Any suggestions?

Hi!

According to this old thread, the trick was done when adding the sequence {Whitespace}{Whitespace}{Enter}.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately this doesn't work. When I view the 'Approval' in Flow the markdown formatting is displayed. But when I view it in Chat, the adaptive card doesn't format at all. 

Hey @jawilson 

You may get more traction using a bespoke card for your formatting

Use the designer here

I did a walkthrough here and there are others doing similar.
