Addicted To A Challenge

Ladies I think I've gone challenge mad! I only entered my first challenge a matter of days ago and now I'm rushing around like a crazy woman to make this card in time to enter it into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge  'Karens Sketch' which closes tonight! I know that a new challenge starts tomorrow but like I said..... crazy woman!!
I had to photograph this card tonight in artificial light which doesn't do it any favours and I burnt my husbands pork chops for tea in the process but as all you fellow crafters will know, you have to get your priorities right!!

I have been saving this wonderful paper for years (no need to distress it soon it's already vintage!) I never thought I could bring myself to use it but it was made for this Tilda and my favourite frosted berries were a perfect match which also makes it eligible for the challenge over at  Just Magnolia my favourite things.

I have entered this card into the following challenges
