SHOPPING OUR STASH #239 - Fantastic Plastic

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps! We have a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we would like to see you use plastic of some type on your card or project. Whether that be acetate for a shaker card, plastic buttons, you could even recycle something plastic! Many options out there, I went with recycling some plastic mesh. Have you ever bought one of those little crates of tangelos, and there's that plastic mesh covering them to hold them in the crate? Yep, that's what I used. Check it:

 Here's the inside:

I am so over with all the red/pink/kissy/mushy Valentine's Day stuff, that I made a Halloween card! LOL! I cut the mesh very wonky and adhered, then just searched my mega stash of Halloween supplies for some dimensional stickers. On the inside I inked the sentiment with red on the bottom and black on top before stamping to the card.  

Ooh! Shiny!

Want to play along? Sure you do! Just make sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you made! While there, please do check out what my teammies created for your viewing pleasure, and leave some love on their blogs! Thanks for visiting!
