All Wrapped Up for Christmas

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
At the weekend, got the opportunity to create another bottle cover for another of the colleagues at work, went for a Victorian Vintage feel on this one with the plums and olive greens along with the golds, felt it worked really well, especially with the papers chosen.
I gave the whole creation a spray over with some glitter lacquer, it gives it really Christmas feel.  The flowers in the main are from Wild Orchid with some from local craft shops, the ribbon was a freebie from Wild Orchid and the leaves are a die from Grimsby Crafts.  The tag is a nestie and such a pretty one too. The base is a Marianne fancy circle die.

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
