Off Centre

The current Less is More challenge is to create a card with the focal image being "off centre". After this attempt I can confirm that I really do struggle with CAS cards.  I seriously have the need to layer something, not necessarily mounds of patterned paper etc... but I need to just add a little something.  In this case I added the world's tiniest butterfly by Purple Onion Designs. (But don't ask me why I decided to use a gem that was almost larger than the butterfly!!!).

Paper: PTI Cardstock
Ink: Brushed Corduroy & Forest Moss DI
Stamps: Unity (Insightful Meadows); POD (butterfly); Hero Arts (sentiment)
Other: Gem (HA); Corner Chomper

I am not sure that this card will ever make it into my faves!  But it was good to try something different.

This is my second post of the day, so scroll down to see the previous one.  And thank you so much for popping by!  Have an awesome day!

Brenda this is superb!
I love that image and the butterfly is a super addition! We don't have anything against a little extra this and that... as long as it remains Clean and Simple and understated.
Super job, do come back next time for another C&S challenge!
