Mixed Media Tag

Hi guys, it's that time of the week for our challenge over at
Paper Take Weekly,
this time we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp,
 it's a take your pick challenge so
use sketch 103 or free,
Colour - blue and green - either or,
technique - Make or include a tag
Product - use lace, either paper or real

I was in the mood for grunge!!! so i altered a wooden Tag shape I bought at a craft fair the other month, The birdcage i made myself using light chipboard, it would have been better with a heavier weight but I didn't have any, so need some though, anyone know where i can get some?
after glueing it together, i sprayed it with paints and finally added a couple of Inka Gold waxes, 

I used a Bo Bunny stamp, and a few stencils too for the background effects, when dry I finished off the tag with some flowers and chipboard embellishments, listed below
