A Patriotic Celebration

Hello, My Craft Friends! I hope your week has been an enjoyable one. Today, or should I say tonight, I have a cute little patriotic card to show you. I made it with three challenges in mind. I will list those at the end of my post.

This was a fun little card to put together.

Here is what I used:
Twinkle Toes Cricut Lite cartridge ~ background shape and shadow
Stand and Salute cartridge ~ firecrackers ( these were turned  and I hid the stripes using my Gypsy )
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment
TPI Studio ~ sentiment
Patterned Paper is from My Minds Eye Party Time stack ( this paper has a little glitter but it doesn't show up in the picture too well )
Sizzix Embossing Folder ~ Lines and Dots
Ranger Glossy Accents ~ used on the eyes to give some shine
Stickles ~ Orange Peel and Yellow
Baker's Twine
White Gelly Roll Pen

Here are the challenges I am linking to:

My Craft Spot ~ Monday Challenge #11 Tie It On! Use some kind of ribbon or twine on your project.

My Creative Time ~ Throwback Thursday Challenge. Use ANY "Cricut Lite" cartridge of YOUR choice & incorporate some "BLING" somewhere on any project of your choice!

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Let's Face It Friday! Patriotic Challenge. Create a patriotic card representing your country and as always must include a Peachy Keen Face.

Have a great weekend, Everyone, and

Happy Crafting!
