I was honored and delighted recently to be asked to create a crafty itinerary for the Desert Islands Crafts Challenge blog!  If you’re not familiar with DICC, they present a new challenge on the 1st and the 15th of every month.  They provide a list of 10 items, and you must use a minimum of three of those items on your creation, which can be a card, layout, or other crafty project.  My itinerary is up now through April 14, 2012.  I’d love to see what you can create from it!  Here’s the list:

1. humorous or punny sentiment
2. no glitter
3. suitable for a child under the age of 10
4. 2 or more patterned papers
5. sponging
6. masculine
7. clean and simple
8. pearls
9. punched or die cut embellishments
10. brown

I used items 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 for my card.  I was trying for #7, too, but I think it’s stretching the limits of “clean and simple” a bit. I used the mirror image of the March 2012 Sketch For You To Try for the layout. Item #2 is in honor of Operation Write Home. If you have handmade cards that need a home, I encourage you to consider donating them to OWH.  Cute Rhubarb the bear makes this card work for the current OWH Stars & Stamps blog Midweek Throwdown Challenge, too.

Thanks again to Taylor and the rest of the Desert Islands Design Team for letting me be a part of them for this challenge!

Supplies for this card:
Stamps: Thoughtful Rhubarb (Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps)
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa (Stampin’ Up); Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink); papers from Oxford 6″ x 6″ paper pad (Basic Grey)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Close to Cocoa (SU)
Other: standard circle Nestabilities die (Spellbinders); markers (Copic); sponge
