Crafty Cardmakers 19 - desert island!



Time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight our challenge is 'desert island' - basically we'd like to see all your absolute essential items that you couldn't be without, even if you were stranded on an island lol :o) And your card must be made entirely from those essentials. Hope to see lots of lovely entries!

I have a very long list of items that I couldn't possibly do without, but I had to narrow it down a bit because I didn't want this card to be too fussy - I wanted a sweet and simple card for my friend's little girl who's 3, and was baptised yesterday. I'll make all my essentials bold to make it a bit easier! I've used a digi stamp, this one is from Mo Manning, and I've coloured the image with promarkers. The lovely paper is MME (at least I think it is, I know it's meant to be a Christmas one) and the cardstock is coredinations. I've used lots of Green Tara flowers with flat backed pearl centres and some buttons from my stash. I have used circle and blossom nestabilities to mount the image. I also like to add a bit of sparkle - on this card the paper is glittery, I've used a sakura clear stardust pen on the little girl's headband, and one of my buttons is sparkly too.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
