Celebrate TODAY

For this 5.5 x 5.5 inch card, I started with this sketch from Mojo Monday.

I love square cards so I started with a pre-made red 5.5 square card.  Then I cut out the star from American Alphabet page 25 and all of the layers at 2.25 inches.  Next I cut circles from the same cartridge page 61 Font 2 Shadow at 2.75 inches in light blue and 3 inches in white.
I cut the lighter blue in 5.25 x 5.25 for the card layer.  Then the strip of striped paper is cut at 2.5 X 5.25.
The banner is cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge on page 29 and cut at 3.25 inches.
The stamp is from PaperTrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages and stamped with Stampin' Ups Night of Navy onto a 1.25 inch white square which is backed with a 1.5 inch red square.

I am also entering this into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge-Me-Monday 
#113 - Memorial Day
Make a project using the color red plus anything that makes you think of Memorial Day (ie. a flag, military symbol, or poppy).

Thanks for coming by and leaving comments,
