Crazy About Cricut Red, White & Blue Challenge

Today I am posting a card for the Crazy About Cricut Thankful Thursday, Red White and Blue challenge. I used my Beyond Birthday's Cartridge with my Cricut Imagine on the print only mode and punched a small star using a paper punch to embellish it. I used some of The Robin's Nest Red Stripe paper and a My Favorite Things: Pure Innocence Stamp called Flower Girl. The original stamp has hearts on the clothes and NO hat, but I wanted it to look more patriotic and thought her outfit looked just like the Naval outfit. So a few paper punched stars and a doodled hat and she looks ready for duty! I also cut the flag using the Cricut Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake cartridge and doodled the stripes. I punched a single star from the paper and added it to the flag, and placed the flag over the Flower Girl flower and suddenly, she is all American! I added a bit of ribbon tied to a paper clip and matted my flag on navy card stock. Her skin is colored with Copic markers.
