Playing in Paradise #113

Happy Friday Everyone, I am so happy that it is the weekend. We have a new Playing in Paradise challenge for you today. Dawn is our hostess this week and the challenge is to 'Use something Recycled.
PPC 113
I wanted a nice study tag so I dug into my recycle bin and pull out an All Bran bars box :). The tag has three layers, the center is cardboard with two pieces of water colour paper glued on either side with Mod Podge.
I used a brayer to lay down base colour then stamps the wildflowers. I then used distress ink to add the musical script.  I punched out three layer of circles two are cardboard and the third is watercolor paper. I heat embossed it with Frosted Glass embossing power to give it sparkle.
I finished with sentiment, and added the button with some twin, the last step was adding ribbon.
