Laugh hard altered paper bag

As it's a very long vacation here- about 11 days and I don't have too many plans (just cames back from the cruise vacation) , I have time to do some designs for some challenges. This Lessology challenge for a Doggy bag was just a good fit  to alter this yellow post tall and thin envelope (cut in the middle) with some mised media  kind of alteretion. I made resist stamping (Prima stamps), heat embossing (Fancy pants old stamp set,the huge  one). Then I used some pieces from Glitz  and K @CO, inked a lot. The final touch were some flowers and leaves in those fall colors, so good for lot's of other web challenges too.
As for recycling? Always. So the jute is recycled, the envelopre  and then this wood old earing used as a charm.

How fun this is! Love that you upcycled a manila shipping envelope. That is so crafty and clever. Love the vintage bits you used and the fun collage style. The old wooden earring is just the most fabulous touch. Thanks so much for playing along with us at LESSology.
