New Bottle

I needed to make another bottle to replace the one sold in S'More Couture, the little shop where I sell some of my arts and crafts.  This one is called "Pure."  It took me a while to finish this as I was getting sick the day I made it.  So over a few days I'd add more elements until I came up with this.  The tag behind the bottle reads:
Message in the Bottle Reads:
"Whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent
or praiseworthy—
think about such things.

Philippians 4:8

I used a tracing paper base and added a bordered paper with the verse printed inside, rolled it up and stuck it in the bottle and tied it with some trim.  Below is a close-up of the focal point.  The bubble is backed with an elaborate "P" (thank you,   Shabby Cottage Studio) and glitter-trimmed and gathered crepe paper back that.  A blue crystal, a key,  and an old jewelry finding with added rhinestones are the dangles.

Sally, your bottle is delightful. Do you sell them? And your cost, please?

Hi, SuZeQ. Thanks for your interest in my bottle. The amount I will make in the shop is $13.20.
