DCM challenge - plastic fantastic!

This week's challenge is to use plastic packaging on a card. I've had fun with this and produced without a doubt the most bizarre card I've ever made!

This is what I used. The bottom of a bottle of Robinsons squash which looks vaguely flower like.









And it was bloody hard cos the plastic at the bottom is ruddy thick! I wanted to cut out the flower - impossible! So I ended up with the most sticking out embellishment in history. It's hilarious!! But I like it.

I used DCWV glitter matstack, the plastic thingy, gold paint & krylon, ribbons and a happy birthday sticker. Great fun!! :-)

Oh and it was almost impossible to stick my pokey tool through the middle to get the brad through! Don't know how I managed it without maiming myself!

Wow, it sounds like using that piece of plastic was a real challenge in many ways! I think it looks great and makes a really fun embellishment.
