MC Apr - Glass Mirror

Well I finally had a nice day to play. I've been busy at work and then having other stuff after work, just left no time to play.

I went gong ho on the challenges today, starting off with Flourishes sketch which I really liked and the color combo from Color Create. Then everything else fell into place.

A little word about one of the challenges. Crafty Cardmakers had a challenge of "Desert Island". If you were stranded on a desert island for 6 months, what would you take from your supplies to survive. That's a pretty tough question, because I love all my "STUFF". But the 2 top items would be my Pan Pastels and Distress Stamp pads (with sponging tools). Both of those items have such a range of possibilities. I would definitely need a few of my Quote rubber stamps from Quietfire Design (and the checkerboard corner), My Black Onyx Versafine stamp pad. Can't live without my EK Success Orbis circle cutter. My Paper Shapers Dragon (or butterfly) punch. A few charms and half pearls to spice things up. Maybe a mold or two. And although I didn't use it for this card, My Cricut personal cutting machine and laptop. Hopefully the island has electricity...
