For a special friend - a birthday bottle card

I have known Kerry for around 32 years since we were at primary school. She is one amazing lady and we have accumulated loads of funny special memories between us over the decades! We have experienced love, laughter, heartbreak, marriage, careers and have been blessed with four beautiful girls between us who are carrying on the tradition of female bonding.
The sentiment on this bottle card has been taken from the docrafts Creativity Club sentiments collection I designed and it so says how I feel...
"A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself."
Happy Birthday Hon!
I made the origami heart by following the fabulous Beckie Dreyer's origami heart
template which can be found here. Once you have had a play and mastered the technique it is
quite addictive, so much so, my Christmas cards are being designed around them!
I used the Owl collection printables I designed for the Creativity Club to create the
theme and embellished the heart with Papermania Adhesive Stones and Bow.
I am a little addicted to my die-cut machine and antiquing with inks, so once again,
these techniques have found their way in!

To finish the back, I added a blank die-cut heart so that I can write my message.
A Papermania Ribbon and Baker's Twine completes the design.

Thank you for looking!
I hope you enjoy the wine Kerry!
