Recycled Pepsi Can Brooches

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with something really different from me-I altered some pepsi cans and this is what I came up with. I started by cutting the cans, taking the lid and the bottom off. I used my Cuttlebug with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies, Butterfly dies, Adirondack inks and Buttons, then brooch pins to finish them off. What do you think?

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:
Moving Along with the Times: Anything but a Card
Lia Stamps: Things with Wings
Recycle, Re-purpose and Reinvent: Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door: Any form of distressing
Unique Crafters Challenge: Buttons
D.L Art: Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesday: Anything Goes
Victorine Stamps Challenge: Texture
Come and Get it Challenges: Butterflies and Flowers

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
