Sarah Hurley Challenges-Create your own background!

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my card for our 'Create your own background' challenge at Sarah Hurley challenges this time. I made a CAS card using Sarah's butterfly stamps which I adore (of course, butterflies...!), two colours of ink by stampin' up and coredinations cardstock. I made my background panel first by stamping randomly with butterfly stamps in each colour. I  then mounted this on to a panel of blue cardstock. I then created my sentiment panel by stamping the sentiment and decorating this with stamped butterflies to tie in to the rest of the card.
I made this for one of my followers I have had the pleasure of meeting by email who is having a hard time at the moment, I really hope it brightens her day :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
