Wine Tag - Inkspirations colour Challenge #84 & Challenge 136

A friend of mine found this old bottle at a garage sale and bought it for me (for less than a dollar) as she knew I was from Holland and would appreciate it.   It is made of some sort of metal and has the word "Amsterdam" engraved in the top.  The original paper labels are also attached.
For this colour challenge (concord crush, daffodil delight, tangerine tango, whisper white) I thought I would make a tag for this bottle.  It also meets the criteria for challenge 136 with the LNS group- tearing.
My intention is to make more labels to sell at my craft show on the 17th & 18th of Sept.

I started out by cutting a piece of concord crush card stock 2 1/2 by 8 1/4" and scored it at 2 7/8".  I punched a hole for the bottle top using a 1 3/8" circle punch.

On the main part of the tag, I first layered Beyond the Garden designer paper on top of daffodil delight, and tore the top before adhering it to the tag.  A piece of concord crush ribbon was tied around the bottom.
With Versa Mark ink, I stamped an image of a key from Artistic Etchings on a piece of Whisper White card stock, and embossed it with the new Pewter embossing powder.  I tore the side of this piece and attached it to concord crush card stock.
The sentiments were also embossed with the pewter embossing powder.  The best wishes was punched with the 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch and adhered sideways beside the key.

This tag would be a great addition to a bottle of wine brought to a Thanksgiving dinner - or a dinner for any occasion.  Just change the sentiment.

Here is a picture of the bottle.  It's rather a dark picture, but you can see how old it is.
