A Tag for my dearest Tony

My dearest friend Tony passed away unexpectedly in September and I feel his absence daily. It's only fitting that I make an album with all the wonderful memories I have of him. To start, I created this tag from some white card stock which I ran through Conversation Hearts Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Adirondack Ink in Lettuce, Mixative in Silver combined for the metallic background. The edge was UTEE's after distressing. Embellishments are PRIMA felt flower boarder, Petaloo flowers, Recollections giant black bling brad, Cricut butterfly & key covered in Glossy Accent. The four little hearts are the negative from the keys I cut with my Cricut. The charm is felt heart and several beads from my jewelry making stash attached to a giant lobster claw clasp through the large eyelet hole at one corner. Several coordinating fibers pulled through the eyelet round out the look. The back of the tag will be used to journal a lovely memory of the last time I saw dearest Tony. My heart has been broken since you've been gone....
