A Walk on the Cold Side

I wanted to do a page in 'ice cream' colours - chocolate, strawberry and vanilla - and this photo fitted perfectly.
I cut papers from stash into squares - four 5" ones and one 6" one for the centre - and placed them on a background sheet.  Then I used a punch for the decorative strip and added the photo.
The flowers (Craftwork cards) had been bought the previous week at the Cardinal Colours crop - I knew they would be perfect for this page.  The centres are done with two sizes of punch and a tiny pearl to finish.
I punched out several butterflies, using Martha Stewart punches, in all three colours, then die-cut the woven circles (Memory Box) to layer them up.  The tiny butterflies in brown are scattered in between.
The title is made with some twill stickers I found in stash - they are lovely to use, I'm glad I "re-discovered" them LOL.
