Vintage Tag

This is a tag I have made for a swap I am participating in at Life on the {Scrap} Beach.  It is actually a swap for mini album kit, but we are to include a hand made tag.
I started with a piece of very vanilla cardstock cut to 2 3/4 x 5 (I think).  I cut the corners off one end and then embossed an image from Friends 24/7, twice, with clear embossing powder. Next I used a sponge to sponge old olive ink on the front and back of the tag. 
The flower and the paper designer paper under the button are from the dsp, Cottage Wall, whose main color is rich razzleberry.
Lastly, I sprayed the tag with a shimmer spray made by mixing rubbing alcohol with the Champagne Mist glimmer paint.  I wish the shimmer showed up in the picture because it really adds a lot to the tag.
Thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment!
