My Creative Time - Recycled 3-D project!

Hello and welome to My Creative Time's recycled 3-D item! 

ahem... yes.. I may have chosen an empty tequila bottle. I have no defense. I LOVE margaritas!!! How, you ask? Classic, salt, on the rocks, definitely with a spash of Cointreau and/or Grand Marnier. 

I really didn't want the "Happy Spring" to stand out too much as I didn't want to distract from the flowers or the design. So I stamped the background stamp in distress ink and the Happy Spring in darker ink. I love how it turned out! 

I hope to have daffodils in this all spring/summer long! :) The daffodils aren't out yet, but my husband saw me making this and brought home roses for me! awww! :)

Hubby is a keeper...roses for no occasion :D This looks like a nice heavy bottle...perfect for flowers and less likely to tip over. The stitching and flower are perfect embellishments and I love the button! Great job!
