DTGD combined challenges

So, I wanted to make a card and combine some of the challenges from a few blogs mainly Sharon Johnston's Stamp Simply #97 Fruit of the Vine using the CPS sketch #126 and then some of the Dare to get Dirty 09 challenges
DeborahLynneS ~ Taken with Texture (I used a CB folder and crystal effects)
TruCarMa ~ Good Enough to Eat (I coloured the fruit to look GETEat)
Becca ~ Cut it Out I used my circle dies, small corner rounder punch AND I cut out the fruit ;)
Lauraly ~ use a ribbon or fiber (I sure hope that the embroidery floss in my buttons count!)
That's six challenges...I kinda feel like I am cheating a little, but just didn't have the time this year to make individuals...
Hope you like it, these are the steps I used to create it.
Stamp fruit in Sahara Sand ink on ultra smooth white
Colour with Copics, cover with Versa mark and clear EP, heat
Cut out the fruit, cut, cut, cut
Cut the BG "Boxer" dp to cover my vanilla card stock base
Cut out a River Rock panel and embossed with the Exotic Floral CB folder, adhere
Cut out central panels from the Boxer paper pad and used the small corner rounder on the smaller panel.  Sponge the edges with River Rock
Cut out the circular pieces with my Spellbinder circular dies, layer together
Pop up fruit on dimensionals and position over the circles and front panel
Stamp sentiment in Basic Brown, use the oval punch, sponge edges with River Rock
Add the dew drops and buttons that I knotted with embroidery floss to match the fruit colours.  That's it!  This card took about 6 minutes...

to envision in my head.  I really like how it turned out.  How's that for getting a "few" challenges done on a card!  Thanks for taking a peek!   Chriss
