I just went crazy with all my little wood farm animals!  I found them at Tuesday Morning over the summer and when I found out about Connie's hop, I just knew they were perfect!  Well, I did paint and spritz them several times.

I layered some Graphic 45 die cut flowers with pop dots for the topper.

The sides of the Prima tin was clear (it originally held flowers).  The flip side of the dots are the weathervane paper.  I love that you can see them on the inside.  I also lined the bottom inside and outside with the flip side of the honey bee paper.

The lid was scalloped and I added pearls to all the "holes" in the scallop.

I made a matching card.

Then I made another card with mostly the same pieces but flipped the paper and brought out some different colors with the teal card stock.  This chicken is only chalked with brown and not painted and spritzed.
