JAI 75 Colour Challenge

Hello friends! Sorry I have been quiet this week, but we have family staying from the Eastern States so we have been busy busy busy. It also means that my craft room is currently a guest bedroom so no chance of any creating for the next week or two.

However I did manage to play with this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink and this week it is a gorgeous colour challenge. Here are the great colours should you wish to play along :)

And here is my project, not a card but a cute little gift holder thingy (not sure of the technical term?) lol I have seen these done before at convention with water bottles and I made one of these larger ones in a class recently at my local store. This one is perfect for hanging over a bottle of wine and adding some chocolate. You could also add gift cards or other little surprises if you wish.

Here is a link to an online tutorial for making the smaller version. You can change the dimensions to suit your needs.

Cardstock: basic black, very vanilla, cherry cobbler, soft suede. DSP by SU!
Stamps: Papertrey Ink.
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, basic black
Other: Leaf die by SU!, flower and label die by PTI, glimmer brads by SU!, scallop circle punch, black satin ribbon.

Just love this idea to dress up a bottle of wine as a gift. Your composition is lovely and suits this colour combo to a "t". Thanks for the link Jodene ♥

Jodene this is a great idea, especially for the wine lover or someone you find difficult to buy for. I love how you have used the colours in this project, must try to make one myself. Thanks for the inspiration. ♥

I've never made one - but I sure am tempted after seeing your gorgeous decorative wine label Jodene (especially since its big enough to add a block of choccy in!!!)Love the idea :)
