First Pile It On! design team challenge!

Guess what secret I've been keeping since last week!?! I made the Pile It On! design team!! Yay! I love combining challenges so this is perfect for me! I'm so lucky to be in the same group of gals because they're all so very talented. The next six months with them are going to be great :D

This week's challenge: Use three different embellishments on your card, layout, altered item, or any other project!

Wow, that's a whole lot of embellishing! Make sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations at the Pile It On! blog and leave them some love on their blogs. Why not play along this week? Get some inspirations as to which challenges to pile on by reading my challenges below or the other DT's entries at the blog. The links to their blogs are also at my sidebar----->

What are you waiting for? Head over to Pile It On! to enter your project! Can't wait to see your creations :D

This card is for several challenges. I finally made it to 10!
  1. Pile It On! - for Challenge #5 Use 3 different embellishments - I've used eyelets, sticker flowers/butterfly, ribbons, rhinestones, buttons (more inside), and handmade flowers
  2. Lili of the Valley - for Challenge #31 Sketch
  3. Stampin' B's Design Team - for Challenge #13 Metal
  4. Rubbernecker Stamps - for Challenge #18 Hard and Soft (metal and ribbon)
  5. Charisma Cardz - for Challenge #26 Buttons
  6. Secret Crafter - for Challenge #39 3 Ribbons
  7. Heart Hugs Designs - for EIC #43 Whichgoose's Shop - I used this as a color inspiration
  8. Raspberry Ribbons - for Circles Challenge (plus ribbon of course)
  9. PaperPlay Challenges - for Week 24 Paper Roses (handmade flowers) - The handmade flowers are in the inside of my card; some were hand cut, some were dies made by Cuttlebug dies. They were run through an embossing folder
  10. Cute Card Thursday - for Challenge #67 Stitch in Time - Faux stitching is on the inside of the card!
Card Details
Paper: SU!, DCWV Fun in the Sun Summer Stack
Stamp: Magnolia's Tilda Picking Lilacs
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, K & Company butterfly/flower stickers

Oh, by the way, for those Magnolia stamps coloring experts, how the heck do you color this girl?! I had the most difficult time with those flowers and getting it just right. Aahh! Okay, sorry, I'm done venting.
