I have pondered over this since the challenge which started last Saturday on Less is More and was about to give up on this week`s challenge due to not having many butterfly stamps or images and having used the ones that I do have many times before. Yesterday I went into my cross stitch box and found an image for... yes you have guessed it... a Butterfly, so out came my needle and thread and away I went and here is what I have come up with.

I have added nothing but a peeloff just to frame the image, not sure if anything else is needed, but I am sure all you wonderful crafters out there will soon tell me.
I would also like to enter this into

Thank you all for taking a peek and your comments are always appreciated.

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on my LIM card. Unfortunately the plastic had curled round on itself so badly that it was already marked before I pressed it with the acrylic block. This was my second attempt,(the first one was much worse!!).I just didn't have the heart to colour a third butterfly!!
