Dressing Up Wine Bottles

I love all the rich colors in the Farmer's Market Designer Series Paper.  When creating this card, I realized how little I have used the beautiful rich color Blackberry Bliss.   It was just perfect to create a wine bottle topper.

The top is a piece of paper folded over and a circle was punched through the top.

One of this month's Viva La Verve sketches was perfect for the project.   The grapes were cut out from the Farmer's Market designer series paper.

Stamp Sets:  Hello There
Ink:   Blackberry Bliss
