Time for Another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge :)

Good Morning Blogging Friends!
It is that time again! Another Challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday.
I was so excited about this challenge---Make a Shape Card.
I seem to be stuck in making simple A2 cards and needed the push to get my act into gear and step outside of my comfort zone. So when this challenge came up I knew exactly the "shape" I wanted my card.

I found a wine bottle SVG file awhile back..probably during my search for another file and put the idea in the back of my head. (sorry not sure of the site...I will search for it and if anyone is interested leave me a comment)
It is now time to pull out the creative idea...and take what I had pictured in my head and make it work.

I have to say I really LOVE the way this turned out! I  used the SVG file and SCAL to weld the wine bottle for the base. After cutting out the base I cut  another bottle and all the layers.
I had the stamp sentiment from a Birthday bunch by Fiskars that was perfect. I made it look like a label...placed it inside another oval stamp and added some bling with my irock.

I wanted the top of the bottle to look more like a cork so I used one! I took a piece from an extra cork board and trimmed it to mimic the shape the paper would have been.
I did have a bead ring around the bottle to look like a wine charm but I took it off and I like the way it looks better without it.
The bottle is attached with foam dots for alittle more added dimention.

Size of the card is 2 1/2" x 8 1/2". Tall and skinny :) But with plenty of room to add a nice message inside.

Well I hope you like my Shape Card and want to play along with this weeks challenge. Make sure you head over to Whimsical Wednesday's blog, check out the other DT's projects and link up your project!
