BBTB2/Patriotic USA

Good Morning...Happy Monday to each of you visiting me today to see what's up at Bitten By The Bug2 for the Monday challenge. Our lovely and talented design team sister, Susan, asked us to design with something patriotic.  I went to my INDEPENDENCE cart and used the cuts for on my red white and blue patriotic card. 


I did my usual heavy embossing, added a red and white checkered ribbon ...and the stars are actually from one of my remaining Sizzix die cuts.  I seem to have issues cutting stars on my Cricut because  the little points never quite come out without a snag.  I love my little Sizzix star die cut.
I know you've found loads of inspiration from the design team cards... I also hope that you will join in our challenge for the patriotic theme.  Remember....your card or project has to have a Cricut cartridge cut, and we hope you've followed our rules posted on the top of our BBTB2 blog.   Please remember too to disable that baaaaaad word verification so we can leave a comment easily when we visit your blog to say hello and thanks.

Awesome card, Carole. Love how you added that touch of red and white with the gingham ribbon. There's something so Americana about gingham to me so it's the perfect embellishment for 4th of July.

Love it! Red, white and blue always makes me happy. Love your embossing and all the details. Love that you used the 1776. Great ribbon.
