Watercooler CASE Challenge adventure

In addition to Blog Hops, the Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who chat around the water cooler at Stampin' Connection decided to do regular challenges.  They have a fabulous design team, and the current Watercooler Challenge is to Copy And Share Everything - ok, well, Something - from one of the design team member's websites.  Doesn't that make it a CASS Challenge?  Hmm.

Before I get too distracted, I knew right away that I would copy one of Jackie's cards.  This one, specifically, because it's been at the top of my list of cards to copy since I first saw it; I just had to wait for my Kinda Eclectic stamp set to arrive.

stamp sets - Kinda Eclectic, Perfect Pennants; ink - Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon; stampin' write marker - Mossy Meadow; card stock - Mossy Meadow, Whisper White; punches - Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly; Big Shot with Chalk Talk framelit  
I didn't change much, just one color and placement of the butterflies, because it was already fabulous!  The only reason my butterflies are different is because I did that part from memory :/ and the only reason I changed the color was so I could use Blackberry Bliss on a different Card Buffet card.  So, in case you missed the subtle hint, if you attend Card Buffet at my (temporary) place this month, you can make this card, too :)  If you don't live nearby, be sure to contact your local demonstrator to order this awesome stamp set and the equally awesome new In Colors; I can't imagine that you can get along without them!

Oh, I also changed the sentiment (because I don't own the one Jackie used), and I left off the sequins, but I'm thinking that I should add them to my card - what do you think?

Beautifully cased, Kathe. Love the way you've made subtle changes but left it true to Jackie's original. Maybe it's a good thing you didn't have the right sentiment. I love the one you used. Thanks for sharing.
