I “CASEed” this card. I apologize to the original card creator because I can’t find her name now. For my first Stampin Up! workshop as a demonstrator, I offered two options: Island Indigo, or Chocolate Chip, on Facebook. I guess the Indigo looks better online, but the brown one looks amazing in person. The Island Indigo got the most votes, but when my friends got here, they all said they liked the brown one better. I already had the Island Indigo cut out, so  I used the Stampin Up! Swallowtail Stamp, Linen twine, and one of the Very Vanilla 5/8′ flowers that I dyed using a little water mixed with ink from the stamp pad. The flowers don’t look great in this picture because I had to scan them on my scanner and it smooshed the cards a little. The flowers come back to life when they aren’t in the scanner!

on the chocolate chip colored card, I layered First Edition Designer Series Paper sponged with chocolate chip ink, Very vanilla card stock-using the “blank” Papillon Potpourri butterfly stamp and the stamping off method to create the pattern. The top layer is the Swallowtail stamp with the “Wish Big” sentiment. I tied around the linen thread and dyed the Very Vanilla 5/8″ flower trim with chocolate chip ink and water. I wish I had made the top two layers a little smaller. I believe it would have enhanced the look of all three layers without taking away from the front layer.
