Crafty Cardmakers GDT Card

Firstly i really hope i've done this schedualed post right!!...we're defraging the computer and i cant access it for a while....:-)
so....when Vix emailed to ask if i'd like to be a guest designer this week over at Crafty Cardmakers i jumped at the chance..and my mission??....a desert island theme...and im not talking palm trees to create a card with all your must haves so if you were to be stranded on a desert island you would be able to take all the things on your card!!...what can i say..trying to narrow everything down was a nightmare...but the theme is quite broad so it could be a particular style of stamp or a punch, cuttlebug get the gist ...and here is what i came up with....i'll also list at the bottom some other challenges that im entering her in :-)

so if i was to be stranded on a desert island....i would most definately NEED...

K&Co papers ...lush!! - ive distressed them a little with scissors and a nail i get to take them too ;-)...

ive used a magnolia image but i really had difficulty chosing... but she's so nice to colour...

flat back pearls...

large and small roses

hat pins


ribbon to make a bow with my bow maker

some really nice sheer lace

MS leaf punch..and i used my MME bloom and grow papers for im taking those too :-P

everything is covered in glimmer mist - Tattered Angels -bubbles

added sparkle to flowers with my opal dust

also my new friend Mr Stickles in cotton candy and stardust around some of the distressed edges

glossy accent

and of course my faithful promarkers in the following colours

ivory, blush, dusky pink, tan, sandstone, cinnamon, cocoa, henna, babypink, cocktail pink, antique pink, pastel pink, pear green, moss and vanilla
Quixotic Challenges - Heavy Metal (charm and pins)
