The image is from the 'Every which way' set (of course by Penny Black), which I coloured with watercolour pencils. I used more paper from the same MME collection on the band around the middle, and inked all of the edges before assembling the card.
I decorated the tag inside with the same papers, and added an anonymous quote I found by Googling:
