Tickling the Ivories

I've made another card for Isa's I challenge. I had fun sewing all the beads on, and accessorising. The scanner hasn't caught the gold of the beads, though.

I bought some plastic tags at my local art shop. I don't know who manufactures them as they were loose in a basket, but they come in various shapes. I found that Brilliance, StazOn and fluid chalk inks remained permanent on them if you heat set them. The plastic warps a bit in the process but returns to shape when cool. It was hard to punch the hole though.
