Altered Metal Tin

Hello Everyone!

Today I want to share with you a sweet fun project
 I did yesterday. I had an empty round metal tin that had
 flowers in it that I bought at Michaels, so I decided to
 decorate it vintage style. Hope you like it. This is what all
the items looked like that I used.

Unfortunately I forgot to take this picture before I started
to cover the inside of the tin so it already had the
 DP glued in it when I remembered, LOL

Here is a lits of what I used:

Designer Paper-Mirabelle by The Paper Studio
Seam piping & Crocheted Lace - Walmart
Lace Doily and Ribbon - My stash
Flowers & Leaves - Michaels
Metal embellishments - Tim Holtz & Bo Bunny
Tin - Recycled flower container

I am entering this in the following Challenge:

So what do you think I would love to hear
 your comments about this project.
Until next time, God bless you all !

made to enter into Joan's Garden's Weekly Challenge!
 Oh my gosh was it ever easy to make, you just
 have to try one!!

If you go to Joan's Garden and look at the Challenge posting
you will see the Guest Designer, Sue Walsh's beautiful basket
she tells how she made it and where she got the template from.

Joan has such fun challenges and her on-line store is really
fun to shop at ,she is truly an enabler to the max!! LOL

For my basket I used Core d nations cs paper embossed
in theTextile textures embossing folder then sanded,
I also used my Martha Stewart punch for the handle.
The leaves and flowers are from Michaels and a crochet
doily from my stash. The tag punch is an old one from Emagination

The stamps used are from SU & Hampton Art.
I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.
Dimensionals were used to pop out the images.

The second baby girl card was made using DP from
 DCWV and SU CS and a Martha Stewart punch,
 Stamps are SU & Hampton Arts. The button is from my stash.

color all these in. Dimensionals were used to pop out the images

The little boy card was made using SU card stock and DCWV DP.
The punch is Martha Stewarts. The ribbon is SU gingham.
