Easter card with Acetate Butterflies

I had an unexpected Easter card from my neighbours this morning, so set to work to return one. (I don't normally send Easter cards)

As I had some more printable acetate arrive yesterday I thought I would incorporate more butterflies onto this card, just to show how delicate they can appear. They are a devil trying to photograph though!! If you fold them with their wings almost closed they will stay like that and just pop back when you take it out of the envelope!

This is another entry into Less is More this week, whose guidelines this week is the use of Acetate.
