More or Less the same!

 Morning, my card today is for the Less is More challenge, again! After yesterdays blunder just had to try and redeem myself. Don't enter very often as I have said before, I do find them difficult too do and was feeling quite chuffed that |I had managed to come up with something for this weeks challenge but I couldn't even get it right could I! First I made a matted layered card and then I entered more challenges than I was allowed, oh dear! Well I received  many lovely comments on it along with Chrissy's one (thanks so much for that, hopefully catch up with you all as soon) so had to hopefully get it right this time. Was a bit stumped what I was going to create and it isn't for the lack of stash lol, I really liked my first card so went down the same road but just a wee bit different. Same stamps, Butterfly, inks but since it was a one layer added the punched border, orange ribbon and added a couple of punched flowers. Right going to read the post again to make sure, yes I have problems with following instructions, tend to see things that isn't there and not see things I should, tell myself it shan't happen again but there always seems to be a next time, so I do apologise. Must try harder to control myself lol.

Memorybox Butterfly coloured with TH distressing inks using my stipple brushes,
 nothing very artistic, just a dust here, there and everywhere lol!

Never mind, it's always good to have extra cards in the box. You never know when you're going to need extra.
Both cards are exquisite. I love the shading on the butterfly.
Happy LIMing!
