Altered Monster Energy Drink Can: Vintage Style Challenge

Hello friends :)  You know me, if an object sits still long enough, I will alter it!  Our boy's like Monster Energy Drinks and I asked them to keep a couple of their cans.  After looking at them, I decided to start with a coat of Gesso. The butterfly is by WOW and is called  Build-a-Butterfly.  I've stamped on the can with WOW Brocade Stamp Set 4, and then heat embossed with Earthtone Nutmeg (Suzy West Collection).  The chipboard dress form is Basically Bare.  Lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Patterned Paper is Simple Stories.

While snooping around and hopping to blogs, I spotted this challenge and decided to give it a whirl.
Berry71bleu has this fun challenge through January.  Look at this awesome Prize!
