Waltzingmouse Tag Challenge

SQUEEEEE!!!!  Have you seen Waltzingmouse's upcoming release? Holy moly, I know I NEED at least two of the sets, if not three!  Plus I'll probably have to pick up her Labels 14 set, too....watch out, credit card!

Unless, of course, I win the random pick for the Tag-You're It! challenge -the prize is 100 pound shopping spree (plus an extra 25 for using Waltzingmouse stamps)-I'm pretty sure I could spend that in a heartbeat!  So without further ado, the lucky, lucky, lucky (I hope!) tag:
Claire wanted "beauty" and "elegance" and I think the sentiment, stamp, and paper certainly fall under the "elegance" part.  I stamped Waltzingmouses's Vintage Labels 4 using Colorbox Deep Green chalk ink, then applied a K&Co rub-on I picked up for pennies on clearance. Hint: run your rubon through your cuttlebug with some paper/cardboard shims for a perfect application.  The larger label die cut is from Echo Park's Merry Christmas paper pack-expect to be seeing a lot more of this paper in the next two months because it's just gorgeous.  I used PTI Dark Chocolate ribbon to wrap the larger label around the bottle of wine.  Then I punched a hole in each end of the smaller label and ran some red twine through (of course had to add some buttons), then attached the label using foam tape for a little dimension, and tied the twine in the back.

I went into our huge wine stash (of 3 dusty bottles) and was so excited to have one with the perfect winter scene:
How could this not bring comfort and joy?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

OK, rub-ons via die-cutter? Alert the Nobel Prize committee. You are a genius!
