Joan's Challenge #9 recycled box sunflowers

Good Morning Ladies,
The recycled box challenge over at Joan's has my mojo going. I have created another recycled box.
Joan's Challenge #9 recycled box sunflowers is my box. The requirements are...
Recycle a container (round)
Color theme your choice
Use lace
Use pearls and flowers

 For my recycled box I used an empty prima flower tin. I have been hanging onto this for a long time. This is the top.
 This is what the side of my container looked like before I started creating.
 All the dies I used to create this tin came from Joan's. She has the best selection of dies in the country as far as I am concerned. If you need it she has it. I used tim holtz alcohol inks to change the color of my tin. The very bottom die that covers the clear window in the box is a Marriane die. The cardstock is double sided, so when you open the tin the side paper shows through the window. I should mention all the dsp came from a Graphics 45 12 x 12 pad. The pad is playtimes past. The sunflowers and olive leaves are cut from Cheery Lynn dies. The rolled flowers are cut from a memory box die. The single leaf is stamped and cut from a Heartfelt creations stamp set that you can also purchase at Joan's. The fence is cut from a Cheery Lynn die. My pearls are the centers of the rolled flowers. I cut the little girl from a tag from the same Graphic 45 tablet.
 This is a side view of my box. It shows my lace that I added onto the lid. This box has a very different feel than my previous box.
A close up of the little girl just because I think she is so cute.
Too much fun Joan and Selma! Thanks again!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Cute idea Lori. I love how you used the stripes on the outside of the can. The fence is a nice addition too.

Thanks so much for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly Challenge.
