The layout that became a tag

I've had a layout sitting on my desk that I started a couple of weeks ago with Basic Grey's collection called Konnichiwa.  I decided to finish it, and while searching for my lost photo in my huge pile of "stuff", I came across a tag that I had done while doing Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry class.  The colors matched the paper perfectly so I was inspired to finish off the tag with my flowers I had cut for the layout.
Here's my tag:
The background of the tag is done with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink, and I think (sorry, it's been awhile since I did it)Scattered Straw and Fired Brick, along with Perfect Pearls.  I then embossed the tag with the Sizzix Book Covers set.  I lightly sanded it and inked Weathered Wood distress ink on top. I added the BoBunny butterfly and metal embellishment, my Konnichiwa paper flowers(cut with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die), stickers, paper and the ScrapFX chipboard dragonfly.  I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays on the dragonfly.  If you haven't tried these sprays, they are amazing!
I guess I should go and finish my layout now!
Tomorrow I have another project on the Sizzix blog, hope you visit me there!
