WW Patriotic Challenge












Here is the pattern that I made for my cell phone!




Hello everyone! It's time for another challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This time the challenge theme is Patrioric and must include 1 of the following: Buttons, Bling, or Brads. For my project I did a card and a cell phone skin/sticker. For the card I cut the 4th of July at 3 inches and the banner at 1/2 inch from Independence Day. The stars were cut from George at 1.5 inches and 3/4 inch. I added a star brad to the center of the big star, stamped the "happy", added bling to the 4 and tied ribbons to the bottom.


For my cell phone skin I printed and cut the flag at 2.5 inches from Independence Day using my Imagine and Cricut Printable Vinyl. I assembled all the pieces and cut out the pattern that I made from my cell phone. To finish I added gems to the stars.


I hope you all liked my projects and will play along this week. I can't wait to see what you'll create! Have a great day!

I am going to enter this into Card Creations And More By C's So Saturday challenge which is to make something patriotic.
