Barrel of wine

This lovely image is called "wine barrel" and its from My heart pieces at Stitchy Bear Stamps.
I used it for this weeks challenge at Glitter n Sparkle...
"Beginning with a B"

So, I've got: 
barrel, bottles, booze (!), berries, brown, border.
I would stick a butterfly on there somewhere too, 
But I think this one's a card for a male.
I coloured the image with my promarkers and popped some parts on foam pads. 
I decoupaged the fruit at the top of the barrel.
I made the border frame myself ..I hand-cut the shape and embossed lines around each side, 
as well as inking the edges carefully...and you can't see it well,
but I have faux-stitched around all the edges of the frame, too.
I bought a bargain new embossing folder at the car boot last week too...
and used that inside the frame, as a background.

When I decide who this is going too, I may add their name / age
onto the wine bottle labels.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
