A Tag Card

I have been loving the water-coloring lately and came up with this tag card.
Thank you Love-001
There is nothing too special about this design...the water-coloring is clearly the star!

Paper: Neenah (white), Water color paper (Cason)
Stamps: Leafy Vines, My Favorite (Hero Arts)
Inks: Soft Sand Mid Tone Ink by Hero Arts, Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Dusty Concord, Feathered Peacock, Bundled Sage
Embossing Powder: VersaMark (Tsukineko), White (detailed) by Stampendous
Accessories: Detailed Water Brush by Ranger, coffee sleeves, The Twinery, sequins (from Michael’s),  Fiskar Corner Squeeze,  3D Pop Dots by EK Success, small hold punch (Staples), Glossy Accent
 
 Again, I am entering this card for Moxie Fab World's Watercolor Challenge. 
Ding---> have you used any ordinary non-craft item for your projects lately? For example, I used coffee sleeves for this tag (top and bottom). With the lovely textures from the coffee sleeves, this tag looks more defined. It's the little touches that make a card extra special, right? 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
