An upcycled plastic bag

Hey craft peeps, hope all are doing great. I am not very regular on my blog nowadays. Just not crafting much, MOJO is up and running, no issues with that. I think sometimes we just need to take a break ;)

Anyways, I made this card yesterday night.
I was sent some really nice card stocks from Thailand by a friend, the card stocks originates from Goa, India...that is one heck of a journey these have made to reach me!! She sent along some books as well. All these came in a nice pinkish -purple plastic bag. The bag was too pretty to trash, so I was thinking of ways to put use to it.

I had used it for my flowers. I stamped it with emboss ink and heat embossed in silver EP, I let the heat tool, run for a while to become hot, and then very quickly used it over the plastic.
I fussy cut the flowers to add.
The front panel is from the textured card stocks she had sent.
I used mama Elephant - freestyle floral set here, stamped the leaves in SU - wild wasabi, and added the flowers using foam adhesive.
Some jewels and sequins to finish of the design. The sentiment is from Uniko and HLS.

I will send this card to my friend, along with many more cards, her husband is here on a business trip,
I actually love this a lot, it has the right balance of all the elements.

The up-cycled bag, it is a big bag, so many more projects will be made!
