Tuesdays tag and card

Hi All, I've started with the tag I made for Tag Tuesday and gone on to show what I made with the tag. For the tag I used some scrap cardboard to cut the tag from, I cut it with my Zing using one of Penny Duncan's free cut files.  I used the image from Geco Galz Travel On, framed it in Stickles, added the lace flower, paper flower, raffia and metal key. I placed the tag on a 5 x 7 card base that has been covered with a die cut made on my Zing.  Not sure that I can call it an actual die cut as I had my blade depth set too high and it merely scratched the surface, so I decided not to waste the piece and used it anyway, I like the look, so I highlighted it with some Ranger Lemonade distress ink.  I also added a little to the envelope liner as it was more beige than yellow.  Pop by Tag Tuesday and see what all the talented folks over there have created for the prompt Keys and Locks.  
I am entering this into the 
*Top Tip Tuesday challenge metal or faux metal challenge
In keeping with the challenge I must share a tip which I think I did above, even though my die cut did not cut all the way through, it can still be used as a background with a little distress ink.
That's it, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
