Leaving Job Card

I made a special card for someone leaving at work last week.  I used my Arty Farty template which I bought three years ago and this is only the second time I've used it as I am useless at times just following written instructions.  I see now Arty Farty do pictures to go with the written instructions so that should help - just wish I had them!!!  
The decoupage toppers are from the Flowersoft Wine Buffs CD and I thought this character supping his wine was perfect.  I cut the topper and a matching piece of card with my circle die as I am useless at cutting circles at times.  For the top of the card I used some Tim Holtz glassine paper, inked it with some distress ink pads, scrunched it all up and inked again.  I love the effect and texture this has given to the bottle.  
I personalised the inside with an insert and backing papers from the CD
I made an accompanying box for the bottle to go in.  The stamps I used for the card and also the tissue paper are a See D's "boys and their toys" stamp.  The card has been finished off ribbon, gems and peel-offs.
