26 April THEME: Stand & Salute or Independenece Day Cart.

You should have come from Erica's Cricut Craft Room at  IF not, please
 head on over there when you are done to see many projects created by my design team Sisters!

Today, Theme Day we are celebrating two cartridges  - We could pick Stand and Salute or Independence Day.  I picked both!

** picking paper from Americana Circle/strip from Pebblesinc  - this paper is several years old in case you look for it but the good ole' Red White and Blue never get old...  I also sanded the top of the paper to give it an "old" look as well.

** Cuttlebug Forest branches adorn the bell and then sanded to make it old and worn

** Close to my Heart D1292 Home of the Free stamp set is the sentiment on top of the Dog Tags.

**  Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge  gives us the Dog Tags on page 46 cutting out at 5inches.  I cut the image dog tags that EVERY soldier wears.  I still have mine, as I was in the US Army from 1980 to 1989.

** Independence Day cartridge is using the FREEDOM cut out at 1.5in H  & the LIBERTY BELL cut at 2.5in H.

** 3 star brads from my stash is just random...
