This is a card for my cousin who, I am sure you can tell is turning 21! I have been struggling with this card for months, I know I wanted all the components in this layout but I really struggled and whatever I tried the composition was just not right. Then I saw THIS card by Pickle and it fell in to place! Thank you Kerry. So I started off with a CWC Elegant card blank and added a square of paper from the new Echo Park Be Mine Collection and layered this with black DB CS. I have then added a strip of DB Posie Pink also layered with black; I have then cut the '21' panel using a MFT Die-Namic from the Framed Greeting Die and Stamp Set, this has also been layered with black CS. I have added two CWC Card Candi to the sides and then added the Roller Rink Thickers to it. A Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly then punched and adhered with DB Sugar Coating and added beside the number panel. Tiny pearls added to finish.

The inside has just been layered with more black and white CS, a sheet of the paper {which I have just realised is upside down!} and another butterfly. The greeting is one from the PTI Birthday Basic Set.

STAMPS: Papertrey Ink. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs, Echo Park. TOOLS: My Favourite Things Die-Namics, Martha Stewart punch. EMBELLISHMENTS: Craftwork Cards Card Candi, American Crafts Thickers, Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating, The Hobby House Pearls.
