Old fashioned tag

Hello everyone - glad y'all stopped by! I've got a sweet tag to show you that's a real gem! 

The background paper is really cool - it's got a lovely collage of vintage jewelry, gems, and flowers. So I enhanced it with alcohol ink pearls and some real jewelry! 

You can see the shimmer and the texture in the paper - like old wallpaper. 

I love adding jewelry and bits and bobs to things to give it a 3D feel and make it look more substantial.

A bit of lace at the bottom makes for a lovely backdrop. Even my lady paper doll has some bling! 

This would be so fun attached to a wrapped gift or even by itself to express your appreciation to someone. It's a nice, heavy chipboard tag that's about 9" in length. 

It's a little shabby, a little vintage, and alot of texture and color! 

I'm entering this at A Vintage Journey and Creative Artiste!
