By the sea

Tonight I am sharing a large tag I made from recycled packaging from graphic 45. I have used the collection "by the sea" this has been my favourite release so far. I layered papers, fussy cut and added a miniature bottle top and glass vial filled with blue beads. A couple of chipboard pieces and then I spritzed with blue perfect pearls to finish 

So enjoyed making this, hope you like what I have made. Thanks for looking & big hugs to you all xxx
