One Cornucopia - Three Challenges

Hello There... Me again!
I wanted to share a card with you that I'm entering in two challenges. The first is for Just Buggin'. The challenge this week was two use three Cricut die cuts on your project. I used the cornucopia, banana, lemon, and grapes from Paper Doll Dress Up. I also used the apple from Doodlecharms. I hope that
The second challenge is for Bitten By the Bug. I haven't played over there forever. So I was excited to give it a go this week. They we're to use the cornucopia from Paper Doll Dress Up.
Last but certainly not least is Cricut Cardz Challenge...their theme this week is to use a Thanksgiving theme using any cartridge.
Here is the card.....

As you all know the Cornucopia was cut from PPDU. I embossed it with the Distress Stripes
Cuttlebug folder and then distressed it more with Tim Holtz ink. I pop dotted the front to give it a little dimension. I tied some rafia in a bow and hooked it to the tail. The banana and lemon were also cut from PDDU and shadowed with the distress ink. I cut the grapes twice from PDDU, then cut each grape off the second and distressed the edges and pop dotted a select few. I didn't quite get the look I was going for but it turned out OK. All that is mounted on some blocks cut with Nesties and a little doodlin. The flowers are Prima's with adhesive gems as centers.

Overall I like how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!
