You're the Real Treasure!

I hope the boat is coming back for this little chimp!  What fun is a treasure without friends?!  I am really enjoying Shari Bresciani's illustrations for Purple Onion Designs!  This card is the combination of three images and a sentiment: 
The island was first stamped on a white cardstock panel.  The background was ink blended with Distress Oxides.
On a separate panel, I stamped the monkey, masked him, stamped the treasure chest, masked it, and then stamped the island.  I colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut it out and glued it on the background.
I stamped the sentiment along the horizon and added a couple of white gel pen seagulls and water marks.
