January S&S Hop: Mesh It!

hi! welcome to another Smeared and Smudged blog hop!
I missed last months so I was so excited to join this month! I had a blast creating my project!
the theme this month is "Mesh it" and here is my project

I guess its a wall hanging...the base is cardboard (a really cool painted piece I got from my Secret Santa..thanks) the cardboard has white, gold and yellow on it, then I colored my Accordion player from the Carnies set (this is my first time using her...this is one of my new SI sets) ...I colored her with markers and then I added some black mesh I got from my mother in was Halloween decorations...curtains I think... then I dropped handfuls of buttons in the corners and put Elmer's (PVA) glue on them to hold them in place, added some home made spirals and my senti from Ginger's house and there I have a super rad project!

here is the rest of the girls be sure to leave lots of love!

Hmm, your girly must be what they mean by a Hot Mess. Sexy and sad at the same time, oops sorry that's a judgement ;D

This is such a fun and interesting card. So many bits to look at. Love the mesh work!
