KS Crew Challenge -- Going Green

Happy Monday everyone!
It's another KS Crew challenge (KSCC#14) time!! The challenge is "Going Green", hosted by the awesome stamper Lynn! It's so important and necessary to recycle and we all have to be kind to our planet. Let's find something to recycle or reuse instead of throwing away and incorporate into your project. KS Crew challenge is held in the first Monday every month from now on and you have 3 weeks to work on (enter by June 21st for KSCC#14). Of course you can enter as many as you want :) The participants of the challenge will have a chance to win $50.00 of KSS products! So, ink up your KS Stamps and come to join with us! It's gonna be fun!!
Please check here for more information about the challenge. I can't wait to see your recycled project(s)!!

For the challenge, I used a tag that was attached with a shirt I bought. The tag was already distressed and had great designs. I knew I was going to use it for my future project one day. I also found the fish net look a like ribbon in my junk stash. That's it! I decided to use it instead of hoading, lol.
I stamped the images from 3 step Sea Shells and A Year of Thanks set. Since the tag was already distressed, I distressed and inked the edges of the sahara sand panel and shells with distressing tool and the chalk ink. The net was mounted with the vintage snaps.
