Butterfly Thoughts

Happy Thursday!  I'm looking forward to a loooong weekend.  We're starting a bit early, so I'll be hanging with my hubby Friday through Monday!  Yay!  Today, I'm pulling out another August VLV card {August Week 4} I made last week but didn't get posted.  This one combines the frame from Love Story with a sentiment from Kind Words.

I chose the third inspiration option for this sketch, loving the colors, the paisley pattern mixed with the stripes, and the graph look of the window panes.  The photo kind of reminded me of the new ABC's & 123's digi papers from Sugarplum Paperie, so I went with that, choosing the graph paper, some red diamond checks and some sagey aqua to print. 


The Love Story frame is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on the graph paper, then I lightly filled in the edges with a blender pen and stamped the Kind Words sentiment inside.  I then embossed just the bottom portion of the graph paper with a paisley Cuttlebug folder and inked up the edges for a little vintage effect.  The aqua piece is embossed with the candy cane stripes embossing folder and I added some riding hood red taffeta.  I punched the fountain fun corner adorner punch from the top two corners of the red paper, then punched again on early espresso and the leftover flourish shapes were fit into the corner punched paper.  I finished off with a trio of butterflies punched and popped up for the circles in the sketch and a few little chocolate pearl accents.
