Tattered and Torn

I have a big clean-up of my craft supplies at the moment and I seem to find all these bits and pieces of lost and now found left-overs behind the desk, in some corners ... some are a bit tattered some are torn. I created my tag from pieces I have been gathering over the last weeks (lol)
ripped corrugated paper layered with part of a vintage ledger and some torn cotton lace;
an adorable little girl's image with distressed edges embellishedwith a 'squashed' vintage fabric button, a little mulberry flower and a stamped sentiment on torn cotton;
the paper beads are handmade from old tattered musical sheets, attached with a rusty safety pin
Hope you enjoy looking at my tag as much as I loved making it!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last weeks tag. Have a lovely Sunday! Petra.
