Boyish birthday tag

Hi! Gee, can you tell I have "birthday" on the brain?!! My BABY will be 8 on Saturday (he's the cutie wearing the birthday boy pin that I made a few posts below)!!! ACK! Makes me sad, but he is thrilled to be turning a year older. *sigh*
Anyway, he's a tag I made for Verve's Get Your Diva On challenge, which was, duh, to use tags. It felt SO good to use up one of the SU chipboard tags I've had, honestly, for years! I covered the tag with some dp, then sanded and sponged the edges in
brown. That sweet sentiment is from their Birthday Bash set, as are the two balloons which I paper pieced and popped up on dimensionals. I cut out the sentiment using Verve's Charming Oval dies and layered it over two different nesties. The corrugated border strip is an MFT border die. I added the button, which may look like it's actually attached to the twine from the balloons, but it's not! hehe! Some green metal bling finishes it up - I thought as long as the "bling" is a boy color and metal, it'd be ok to add to this grungy-boyish tag! Whatcha think? Here's a pic highlighting more of the texture:

As always, thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate your comments!
