Celebrate America - BBTB Challenge





Happy Monday Everyone!! Have you noticed I've been doing alot of patriotic cards lately? Well, I love making patriotic cards almost as much as I do Christmas cards!!! This one was made for this week designer challenge over at the Bitten By The Bug site....Regina asked us to use the offset circles from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge....I aslo used the Beyond Birthdays cartridge for the "america" cut and George for the star cut. After I finished this card it reminded me of the Olympic circles...not what I started out with in mind...but that's kinda how it ended up! LOL!! I also used my Martha Stewart zig-zag punch to decorate the bottom edge of the card for added interest and a few buttons and rhinestones too. The "celebrate" is a stamp by Kim Hughes set called "America the Beautiful" which I purchased at Cornish Heritage Farms.
Don't forget my CONTEST for a really neat prize I have going on right now.....You have until midnight my time on July 4th!!! Good Luck!!
By the way.....how do you like the new look of my blog? My youngest son did it for me.....that child has some talent now!!! HUGS and THANKS for stopping by today!!!

Pin It!
