Sweet Twenty-One for One Stop Card Crafts, and several other challenges

Good morning everyone
We have a new challenge at One Stop Card Crafts, and we will be looking to see numbers on your entries to the challenge this week.  This week we welcome a brand new sponsor for 2011...... Ellephantastic.

We look forward to see all your creations on the challenge blog.

****Also is you would like to feature as a guest designer for challenge #118 please put GDT after your name.*****

For my card I have decided to make it a 21st birthday card, and therefore I wanted to make it a little more special.  So, it is an 8 inch square one.

 I have used Bazzill cardstock, and the DT papers are MME Bella Bella, which I adore - I love the vintage look of them.  I have inked around the edges with a chalk ink in brown.  On the pieces underneath the photograph I have used a Doo Hickey die on the edge of the plain card, and stamped the patterned paper with a very old Anna Griffin music stamp.  The swirls are Tim Holtz, leaves under the flowers are Doo Hickey and L-Em, and the butterflies are Martha Stewart.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and pearls from stash.  The beautiful photograph is from Art Freebies.

I am entering this card for the following challenges.

Anything Goes Challenge - Butterflies
CCEE Stampers - Must use a punch - I have a butterfly and the numbers made with punches
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - In the roll of a die - must use die
