That catchphrase for this bi-weekly challenge at My Sheri Crafts is "Oh I love America!":-) I wanted to make something simple yet profound. I am inspired by the thought of our servicemen, hence, I chose a patriotic-themed shield shape from the Independence Day Cricut cartridge. I cut the shield at 3". I pop-dotted it as well as the blue layer for added dimension. The patriotic ribbon is from Charlotte, our DT sister's stash. :-) The star paper is from The Paper Studio and cardstock used are from Bazzill. The buttons and Baker's twine are from my stash. Using Cat's Eye ink, I inked the shield, buttons and the ribbon ever so slightly to add a vintage touch.
