Love your ATC with its fab sentiment and your card is stunning. What a shame the original bottle distorted, I think I would have hit the bottle to get over it!

Pat said...

Two great makes Kathy and I love the sentiment you have used on the ATC and the clever use of the pretty border shape lined in red gives the illusion of a topper, and the two part Rubbernecker stamp is very effective, and the bright red ink looks great and it certainly makes it red red wine. x
