what is this creeper

This is a low growing volunteer.  Has come up numerous years in the middle of a group of Asters.  Is shaded out by them most of the growing season so seemingly doesn't need much sun.  I'd like to transplant it as it has an interesting leaf shape and variegation but am hesitant since it might become a nuisance if encouraged in another sun/shade situation.

Anyone have any suggestions as to what it might be?

I'm moving that dude soon so that i can enjoy the flowers (hope some do show up!) one day.

Thanks! Posted: 7:36 am on March 18th
