Less is more - Off Centre

Hi there! The theme at Less is More this week is 'Off Centre', which means Mandi and Chrissie are
 ' looking for cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance, which doesn't necessarily mean gems in all four corners, or any corners for that matter.'
I tried several different designs and finally decided on this one.
Both stamps are Elusive Images (Chocolate Baroque) and the butterfly has been coloured with promarkers.
Yesterday we spent a few hours walking in some less busy areas of Clumber park and saw quite a range of real butterflies. Photos courtesy of Megan (on my camera, because she forgot to take hers!)
 A small white and a peacock...
This Comma is looking rather  battered and tired, but I'm guessing it has been hibernating until very recently. You wouldn't normally see them until June.

It was a beautiful warm and sunny day, unlike today. I reached for my fleece this morning!
Thanks for all the lovely comments last week and can I say how great it is to be a part of the LIMette community! Thanks for looking!
