Altered Bean can

Hello my friends, hope everyone has had a great week and you are all looking forward to Christmas!!! I would like to share with you all my project of an altered baked bean can.
I've made it into a decorative pen/pencil pot gift using 2 of those lovely Tildas from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection.

On here you can see the holly i used in it's original form and after it was embossed and glittered

Ingredients for my Project are
Medium - Promarkers
Tools - Magnolia vintage tag and swedish lace dies, Sissix swirl die and We R Memory Keepers hole punch.
Embellishments - Real holly embossed and glittered, everything else is from my own stash.
