"For You" Tag with a Vintage Look

At Joan's Gardens this week the challenge is to make a tag and on the tag you need to use something heavier than card stock. You can use Chip Board if you don't have any Grunge paper. The colors need to be old and vintage looking.
I cut the tag out of a heavy kraft paper and layered with Basic Grey Cappella DP ....distressed the edges and inked with distress ink on  both layers. I inked and distressed letters "for you" of chip board and attached to the tag.  Tried to pick up some of the colors in the DP. I glued on a rope of sequins in shape of a heart and added more loose sequins and old beads. The beads and sequins were from an old vintage hat that I salvaged.  Finished with a twine wrapped in chenille which I looped through the hole at the top.
