Birthday Butterflies


This is a gift I made for my daughter to take to a birthday party. As luck would have it, this week's Stamp Something challenge is "something wild." I guess butterflies should fit in nicely. DD picked out a Target gift card with butterflies in pinks and purples with a yellow background. She also wanted to give her friend a sweet treat, so we filled the bottle with M&M's. The large butterfly is an acrylic from the $1 at a local scrap store. The little butterflies are from SU's Cause for a Celebration set. The colors are from SU's Bold Brights. The card base and ribbon is from Michaels. I stamped the black from Staz-On and used my kids Crayola watercolors. The paperclip is from Walmart's office supply section. Thanks for looking!
Update: I have had several people ask wht the bottle is...well, it is an Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressing bottle. My DH went to a lunch catered by OG and his boss sent some of the leftovers home with him. I LOVE their dressing and was only too happy to help finish it off and how cute is that bottle? And now you know!

So cute! Where did you get the bottle--just a left over that you kept, or is there a source for something like. Thanks,
Joan
