Challenge #4: Survivor Style!

Ready for another challenge?
As demos, we see some of our favorite stamps, colors, paper, and embellishments come and go! Your challenge this week is to make a card with things you don't think you could survive without. Think of them as luxury items if you were stranded on an island! Of course, we all know that we couldn't live long without our craft desks....but give it a try!

Here are the rules:
stamps- use only 1 set
colors ink/paper- pick the 2 you couldn't live without and any number of neutrals, no limit on dp (sorry but I wouldn't travel without my entire dp stash!)
tool- only 1 TYPE of tool
embellishment- only 1

You don't have to be a GSG to play or even be a demo. We would love to see your work! :-)
Have fun and be sure when you post your picture on SCS to include the keywords GSGC04 so we can all see what you can't live without. Also, don't forget to post a link to your card here!

Here is my sample.
My luxury bag contains:
ALL of my punches, 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (every color!), real red, old olive & kraft, tart & tangy stamp set, and the scraps I have left from the retired cerise dp! :-(

Priceless was my set, since it has a little bit of everything
Olive and sky (choc. chip is a neutral,right?!)
Punches are my tool of choice (I layered 'em up on this one)
Ribbon is my #1 go-to embellishment!

Okay, so I've been living under a rock! I am so excited to find this blog! My up-line only has one other down-line besides myself in the area and we are always looking for SU inspiration! Thanks to all you "Girls!"
