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 !
