Three Butterflies card

Hi friends/bloggers, here I am with this week's
'Less is More' card. Late with it this time, explanation 
later.
 
 
This week it's a colour theme and .....
 
 
 
"For our colour challenge this month we have decided to give you a choice.
Either
Three Colours
or

You may use any combination of colours you wish!"
This is what I came up with after a bit of thought,
hope you like it.
Just noticed I was showcased this week too, thank you
so much ! 


Butterflies, colours, distress inking

ps. Late with my LIM card this week as I was helping
 my son look after his two young children. I mostly
helped with the baby as she is only 5 months.
 
Glad to give mummy a break away after all the
sleepless nights she has had. Hard to be awake
so much during the night, I had forgotten 
what it was like lol.
 
Trouble is I sooo miss the baby now. she is
such a sweet baby. I wish we could bottle that 
lovely baby smell too :)
