OK, Now I really think I need an Intervention!

I hope you are having a great week so far!
It's been a great week so far for me.
Yesterday I got to have my first card on a the new Design Team at My Grafico Challenges and it felt great!
And now I can reveal some great news I got on Sunday, I'm on another team at Lily Boo's Boutique!
They are a new digital stamp company based in England (my homeland :)) and soon they'll be having a challlenge blog too so everyone will get a chance to play with their fab images!
I must admit that today I'm going a little far with the challenge combining but as my Mum comes into town in 2 days I really need to get everything in one card! LOL
Today's card covers the following 17 (WOW) challenges:
Papertake Weekly gave me the wonderful Dawny P sketch but I think I missed it by a day :(
Three Clovers wanted some fruity
Cute Card Thursday was feel fruity too!
One Stop Craft Challenge wanted Swirls (in the dp) and Pearls
Just Magnolia anted us to Distress and so I sanded down the embossed cardstock and also inked the vintage lace
Pollycraft wanted Buttons and Bows, you can see the bow and the buttons are on the embossed borders.
Rubbernecker Stamps wanted Buttons too
Paperlicious wanted at least 5 buttons, I hope the embossed ones count!
Colour Create gave me the color combo of Pink, Orange and Green
No Time To Stamp wanted us to use lace
Dutch Dare wanted lace too
Creative Card Crew wanted Girls to Have Fun (I may have missed the deadline on this too!)
Paper Play wanted Dimension
Daring Card Makers wanted Bejewelled Bliss!
High Hopes was Going for the Gold
Creative Inspirations wanted some Bling
Stamp Something wanted something Paper Pieced.
So after that huge list here comes the card!

I used Tilda with Ladybug and covered the ladybug with a punched apple to go with my theme.
The dp is DCVW.
I embossed the Coredinations green cardstock with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and sanded it for the white to show through.
The lace was distressed further with green chalk ink and I added pearls and rhinestones to fulfil the challenges.
I embossed the orange borders with the button Cuttlebug folder and then inked on the topped. I added gold accents with my Prismacolor marker to complete the Gold challenge.

The inside has more dp and another button embossed border.

I admit I'll be going for rehab soon! LOL
Have a great day!
