Altered Paint Can and Birthday Card

I made this for a dear friend and good customer for her birthday. I got the paint cans at HL in a pack of 3 and this was the smallest one.
I cut the 'For You' with my Cricut out of Colonial White CS and distressed it with Bamboo ink. The lace around the top and bottom is from Wal Mart. I used the Mini Medley accents for the little flowers. I made one of the Nestibilities butterflies (with my Cuttlebug.) I make both butterflies and glue them together and add Stickles.
I used the Silhouette Creative Basics paper to cover the lid and added a Big Pinks Bloom. I made the 2 tags with the Cricut and used CTMH's Rub-Ons. I also used the White Daisy Crocheted flowers (wish I could make those flowers myself), I inked the flowers to 'age ' them a bit as they are such a bright white.
The card used the same Creative Basics papers and another flower. The ribbon is from the Creative Basics pack.
After I finished the card I realised it wouldn't fit in the can...sigh....with a bit of bending I got it in there LOL.
Well I worked today and I am working tomorrow so I am BEAT!
Have a wonderful Easter.

This project is gorgeous!!! It's probably there, and I probably missed it because I was too busy drooling, but the tag that says Celebrate on it, is that a stamp?

I am thinking this may be a beautiful project idea for my daughters wedding for her maid of honor/bridesmaids...

I had another DUH! moment. I was going to ask what kind of paper you used on the can, but I can see it is clear and has crinkled paper in it.
Great work. This is gorgeous!
