Off centre squares!

I didn't manage to get a card made for the inaugural Crafty Individuals Challenge before I came up to Dumfriesshire, but I was determined to enter it, so I had to come up with something with the limited amount of stash I brought with me. The theme is "Simply Squares". Being very close to the deadline, and not having much time to spare, simple was good! Fortunately, it also meant that my card could fit this week's Less is More Challenge theme, which is "Off centre". It isn't often that I combine challenges, but I didn't want to miss either of them, so this time it was a case of needs must.

All stamps, and the printed picture, are by Crafty Individuals.

A lovely choice of colours. I have a huge stash of CI stamps and really intended to do their challenge but two lots of visitors made me kind of lose my way, but I'm looking out for the next one.!
Well done you. You've taken the C&S idea and made a beautiful card with it. Kate x

I love these subtle "powdered" colors. They add an elegant touch to this card. The butterfly looks real! The background of the butterfly is a gorgeous addition. Gorgeous card!

Well done making it for two challenges Lynn. I can't even get to creating for one!

This is really lovely and I love how the little picture is enhanced by the colour of your base card. The butterfly is gorgeous.
