New home bottle hanger

Last weekend, we received a last-minute invitation to a house-warming party. So I decided to make a quick bottle hanger for the bottle of wine we had bought.

I used a piece of red cardstock measuring 6.5 x 21.0 cm (the short side of an A4 sheet) and scored it at 6.5 cm. I applied two pieces of patterned paper (free digital download from the Crafter's Companion member site). To create the opening for the bottle, I used a small scalloped circle nestie. The pre-coloured digital image and sentiment are from a Doodle Pantry set. I rubbed the edges of the white cardstock with Antique Linen distress ink and the edges of the PP with Frayed Burlap (both Ranger).

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Bling It On - New beginnings
Doodle Pantry - #19 Use a DP image
Craft Your Days Away - #37 Distressing
Charisma Cardz - #2 Clean and simple (maybe simple rather than clean)
Secret Crafter Saturday - #169 Food and drink (not sure if a bottle hanger qualifies)
Sentimental Sundays - #86 Die cuts
