wow two winning chances :)

any way here is my inspirational piece, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)  Now today this will be one of those photo heavy posts so you might want to grab a cuppa first :)
You see the MIL wants to sell some of my altered bottles and tins at her village fete, there has been a call for them, so here is one in a vintage style that is going to her.

This is the front using a House Mouse image a drinking one as the wine bottle will be inside the box.  I used the nestie decorative oval and then used some of my stash of white flowers and airbrushed them matching the shades of the paper I chose.  I then distressed with Pan Pastels before adding some stickles to them.

The back with an appropriate sentiment and an airbrushed Hobby House Flourish, I also airbrushed some snow white pearls and used these on the top of the bottle holder.

A close up of the flowers

the all important image

That darling pearl flourish

and the sentiment - this I believe is from Alota Rubber Stamps

and think that is me for today, sorry for killing you off
