a quick saturday post - my pretty flower

I just wanted to share the project I completed last night, using a Starbuck's Frappucino bottle and Stampin' Up! inks, dies, stamps and embossing folders.  Really very simple, and very cute and pretty, I think:
The center was cut with a Top Note Bigz die and inked with Certainly Celery, then cut in half and glued on.  I used Elegant Eggplant to stamp my flowers and just cut those out, finishing the bottle by tying Certainly Celery taffeta ribbon around it all.  I didn't have enough buttons or glass gems to fill the jar, but I do have enough glitter to cover Dallas AND Fort Worth, so I just dumped six jars of glitter into my bottle and mixed it up.  I like it! 
Close up of my flower - the layers were cut out of old books using Sizzix dies (I'm sorry, I don't know which ones), inked with Daffodil Delight, and layered together with Zots Glue Dots.  The stem is a rolled seven inch strip of cardstock (about 1/2 inch wide); it was attached to the flower through the first three layers.  I love how it turned out!
