Bitten By the Bug 2: Military Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Memorial Day!   Remember the real reason for why we celebrate this day.  I hope you are making the most of the day with your family.

Today we have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2.  We want to see your military makes.

I saw this idea on a Facebook group I wanted to create it.

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close to My Heart to create the rolled flowers.  I cut the flowers from Candy Apple, Whip Cream and Huckleberry Fusion Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then added pearls to the inside of the blue flowers for the stars. 

I hot glued the flowers onto a piece of Black Licorice Cardstock, that I then placed inside the shadow box I got from Dollar Tree.

I then cut "Proud Military Family" file from Love with my Cricut from white  and silver vinyl and placed them on the glass of the shadow box.  It is hard to see, but the stars are cut from silver vinyl. 

Thank you for stopping by,  Please leave me a comment.  If you have a Cricut, come join the challenge and show us your Cricut projects.
