Something Girly

I almost threw the main image in the trash when I had it done, so glad I decided to try to save it.  I had stamped 5 of the bottles from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps "Flasks" plate on cream cardstock, colored them and then put a layer of Crystal Laquer over the top of each, giving them the Glass look.
So far, so good.  Then I dabbed plum paint all around the bottles.   That's when I decided I had ruined the works, lol.  Actually, I did throw it in the trash but then picked it back out.  It was my craft room trash so that's ok, as it's just paper shavings and such.  Decided to put a card together and take a chance that it would turn out.

Used plum cardstock and dug a matching piece of patterned paper out of a wallpaper book.  Little bit of ecru lace and some fibers and I was done.  Figured it wasn't too bad after all.
