Sketch Papertake weekly challenge Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

Another challenge this time this challenge is for Papertake Weekly Challenge (Sketch) as you can see l have put this card together for a friends Birthday and the papers used are from previous off cuts which l had stored in my scrap box,  l used  a butterfly on the backing paper which also has butterflies on and Card Candy, Pink ribbon with Yellow daisies and a peel off Happy Birthday also edged each background paper with gold peel off just to finish with.

The wording on the Sentiment is as follows.

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If  you don't mind, it doesn't matter!!
Hope you like what you see and thank you for any Comments that you may leave .
