CCT - Dieing for a Punch

Don't be fooled by the theme title for this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge!
You are NOT allowed to use any die cuts or punches!
I decided to keep it simple otherwise I might have got carried away and added a die cut or punched out something without thinking!

I wanted to dress up a bottle for a gift to give to our neighbour who took us on the fishing trip at the weekend.    This Magnolia stamp is so perfect for the job!  
All the other stamps I have used are from Whimsy Stamps.
The ticket is from the 'ticket sentiments' rubber stamps, the postmarks are from the 'Whimsy Circle Postmarks set' and the digital sentiment on the back of the tag is from the Funny Friends set.  All designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs.
The sweet little fish charm is available from Whimsy Stamps in the embellishments section.

other challenges this fits into
Just Magnolia - Sentimental
Cutie Sunday - Everything but no cards
Corrosive challenge - drinks are on us
Shabby Tea Room - bit of metal
One stop craft - not a card
