Altered Bottle Swap

I am in an altered bottle swap with Roberta Slavin over on UK-Irelandcraftswapsgroup.
{You tube video at bottom of the page.}
This is what I came up with.  Again... right out of my comfort zone!  

This was originally a half bottle of grouse that hubby got for Christmas.  The image is a royalty free image from Pinterest.  Most of the details are on the video below but I forgot to mention a few things and added stick pins and a heart charm.   

 The flower on top was sent to me by Yvonne  YWhite22, the beaded trim and flower trim came in a giveaway from Johoclueless on You tube, 
The Cala lilies, pearl bead spray and pink ribbon were from Karls Craft Essex (fb).  

The square glass piece was salvaged from a bracelet I found on  a boot sale.  The little rose above it was part of a hair decoration.

The middle strip of lace came from Emily280881. and is really shimmery, Emz also sent he clear beaded trim you can see hanging over the right shoulder on this pic (left if facing the bottle) the pink beaded trim was  from my stash.  Much of the lace came from Lavish Laces.

 I made a couple of green stick pins as bobby loves green.   If you look inside the lillies you can see        what looks like dew, it is in fact 4mm table scatters again from Karl Crafts Essex.
I used Diamond Stickles on the lillies, rose and my pink flower.

Hand made melted flower.

This little pink acrylic heart charm was sent to me in a swap by Caz.  I tied it on in a bow so that it can be reused easily if required.  I love the way the lace, trims, ribbon and charm look together.
