2 challenges

I am able to meet 2 challenges with 1 card today. Papertrey paperdolls (black, white, fall color) and the Saturday sketch 170 from Stamping411. First let me tell you about this black mesh background. I volunteer for the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. We take donated items and resell to the public to raise money to help build homes in our county. Yesterday a contractor donated a large box of supplies. This roll of 6" wide mesh was in the box. The manager tossed the roll at me and asked what it was. Well I didn't know but immediately replied "Looks like something good for crafts," The guys all laughed at that. But take it back guys, look what I made with a piece of it. Still don't know what the mesh is for but.... The circle is the very last piece of a favorite black and white. I love red with B&W so that is the accent I chose to use. I think it looks like a fun card to send and made totally from my scrap file. (Except the white cardstock). The buttons I garnered from a large collection that came from my MIL house when she had to give up her home. I love how it turned out. Hope you do too.
