CTMH/Cricut Blog Hop Meets Play Date Cafe

Welcome to a fun blog hop featuring the Close To My Heart/Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge!  (If you've already started hopping, then you should have arrived here from Addie's blog, and you'll head to Alice's blog next.)
I wanted to make a patriotic banner to display in my home this summer.  I started with three leftover pieces from a My Creations Banner.  I used the Superhero paper and used the Cricut to cut the triangles (I believe at 7") and ALL the shapes you see here.
I decorated several of the stars with the Universal Backgrounds stamp set.  (I'm not sure which set the little star came from.)
Red and blue Sparkles were fun to use to decorate various stars.

A toothpick is a great tool to spread around the red Glitz Glitz Gel!
All the ribbon is all CTMH (except the large red ones on the end, which is upcycled from a birthday present), but most of it is retired.  It was fun to use up my stash.   

The current Play Date Color Cafe color story PDCC133 came at the perfect time for my patriotic project!  The corresponding CTMH colors that I used are Sky, Outdoor Denim, and Cranberry. 
To continue on the CTMH/Cricut blog hop, head to Alice's blog after leaving me a comment. 
Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Please remember the servicemen and women who have fought for our country to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today.  God bless America!
