Shopping Our Stash Challenge #71

Hello! Yes, its Tuesday already! Time for the next Shopping Our Stash challenge!
Here are the details:

Challenge #71 "Go Green", either use the color green or RECYCLE something!
You have until 11:59 pm on October 8 to enter your project in this challenge.
With the cooler temps lately I'm starting to mentally prepare for winter...
 so I came up with a snowflake card.

Obviously I didn't use the color green so can you guess what recycled item I used?
In the picture below you can see a couple seals taken from Jif peanutbutter jars.
I used a couple "Fleur de Lis" Spellbinders dies to cut out the pieces of my snowflake & glued it together with Glue Dots (minis).

The medallion stamp is a CDS that I purchased last year and stamped in several colors 'cause I was so excited to get  it...then forgot about it! I found this gray-stamped one while hunting for something else and decided it would go well with the silver snowflake. I did add little "extenders" around the stamp with a tiny stamp from the "Frou Frou" set from StampingScrapping.com. Also added lots of Stickles to the stamped image, then clear rhinestones. The "Merry Christmas" stamp is a Stampabilities.
The background was embossed with a Sizzix folder, "Dots, Circles, & Stars".
All the cardstock is from my stash and/or scrap box.
I hope you can join us this week at Shopping Our Stash!
Check out the other DT members' blog for more inspiration...they are all listed in my sidebar.
