My Biggest Challenge Combo Yet!

Hi folks!
I think I may have covered 7 challenges with this card.... let's see... I followed the 'anniversary' sketch over on Friday Sketchers, Just Magnolia wanted to see stitching (mine is faux), over on The Saturday Challenge they are asking for Brads or Eyelets (I had a perfectly coloured flower brad to go with these papers) The Cupcake Challenge wanted a card for a man or boy, Paper take Weekly has the theme of 'Animal Antics', My Time to Craft also has the theme of Kids and lastly Cute Card Thursday wants us to include Letters or Numbers....Phew, I think that covers them all :o)
For my card I used Imaginisce papers, Edwin (Magnolia) has been coloured using  Copic Markers and Koi water colours.  The large butterfly is a Quickutz die and for the smaller ones I used my Martha Stewart punch.  There is a coil of copper wire behind the butterfly which I hope suggests movement and goes nicely with the sketch.  I used my Go-Kreate Amsterdam alphabet to create the sentiment.

You clever thing Sandra covering all those challenges in one card and it's a stunner at that. I love the way you have angled all your backing papers, it works so well and your little boy chasing butterflies is adorable.
