90 year old birthday card

I have been asked by my Mother in law to do two 90 year old birthday cards, i really struggled with this brief as my love for card making lies with colouring images.  I hope that Eileen likes them, the one i am showing here is using a free stamp that i had from a magazine.  I layered this card simply and added a puched border and ribbon from my stash.  I added some gems to the punched border, and to the butterfly. 

The sentiment is from Netty 's blog, she has a huge amount of sentiments which she has as freebies.  Pop over and have a look at her blog - its great!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for looking and for the lovely comments that you leave x
