Let's Get Patriotic! BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, it's Monday and that means is it chemo day this week and time for a new BBTB2 challenge. Our sweet and talented Laura has given us the challenge of getting patriotic since it is Presidents day. Our soldiers are near and dear to my heart as I have a soldier. I don't think our country takes good care of our veterans and would like to see our soldiers and veterans taken care of better. So this card is in honor of our soldiers past and present. I was inspired by this card that I saw on Pinterest. I used the Cricut cartridge Stand and Salute to cut out my word "freedom". That is the only Cricut I used on this card. I used My Creative Time Stitched Star dies for my stars. I layered them with a pop dot between each one and staggered each one. It is attached flat to the card. My papers are from Hobby Lobby, the Paper Studio. My sentiment is from the My Creative Time Happy Homecoming. This card was fast to put together with cutting the angles of the paper being the hardest part. I love the way it turned out! Now I hope you will check out the inspiration my design team sisters have for you and then come and get patriotic with us!! All you have to do is use your Cricut and then link up with us. More detailed rules are over at BBTB2. As always thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will come back later today as I will have another post for you. It will be a blog hop so I hope you will hop with me! Crafty hugs, Brenda

Love this card, Brenda. Red white and blue always makes me happy. Looks great with the kraft paper. Great design.
About the tree, I got it about 3 years ago after Christmas, it's 2 feet tall. It's actually a bright fuchsia color but red looks good on it.
