Blue butterfly card

Hi fellow bloggers, hope you are enjoying the weekend. We are
having yet another family party tomorrow for my eldest son's
 birthday.See details of food below if you are nosey.We have
our lovely woodburning stove in place now,and very nice it
 looks too. OH just doing tiling around it now, dark grey slate 
to go with the black/grey of the fire.It was so hot when we tried
the fire the other day, I think it will keep us toasty all winter now.
Right onto my card, sorry for waffling/rambling again! Hope
it's LIM enough, not sure if it's too 'busy' ...sorry if it is C&M.
For this week's 'Less is More' challenge we have to
Take 3 Challenges
we can choose three previous challenge ideas and then
combine them on a card. So easy peasy really. My mojo
went missing today, but I did manage a card in the end.
Still not sure about it but it will have to do for now, I may
make another during the week......or not. Mostly stamping
this time with a bit of embossing too ( sentiment & butterfly).
Have a great weekend everyone, we will be knee deep in 
babies again lol, not that I am complaining. Here is my card.
ps. I have been making lemon, rosemary and sea salt
 focaccia bread, well starting it ready for baking tomorrow.
Having that with some hot spinach , artichoke  & cheese
 dip served with spicy wedges. Also goats cheese & roasted 
red pepper  bruchetta with basil  Fresh melon too, can choose which
 they want.That's the starters, followed by spicy lentil puff pastry
 plait, new potatoes, couscous salad and seasonal  green veg with
 chilli  & red pepper chutney. Followed by lemon tart & almond
 toffee crunch ice- cream, served with homegrown raspberries or choc
 bites. Fresh pineapple and black grapes. Coffee cake ( as requested
 by son for his birthday), coffee and mints.They always fight
 to take home the left  overs lol. Hope I haven't made you
 all hungry now too he he!

Beautiful card Viv, I love the touch of blue. I like the way you have popped open the wings of the butterfly too... looks like he's just landed on the card and ready to take off at any moment.
