A fun new challenge

About a month ago a new challenge blog started called Desert Islands Crafts Challenge.  It sounded fun to me so I gave it a try.  The challenges are based on an itinerary of ten items.  For you project you need to use at least three of the items on the itinerary.  Well, I was the lucky winner of the first challenge.  What did I win you ask?  I get to pick the itinerary for a future challenge.  This happens to be my week.  Here are my ten itinerary items.

1.   Make it Square
2.   Inspired by Nature
3.   Handmade flower
4.   Hand colored image
5.   2 or more patterned papers
6.   Pearls
7.   Twine
8.   No sentiment on the front
9.   Distressing
10. Birthday Theme

Here is the card I made

I was able to work in seven items on the itinerary. Make it square, inspired by nature, hand colored image, two or more patterned papers, pearls, twine (mine is bakers twine), and no sentiment on the front. I hope you are intrigued by this new challenge and want to give it a try.
