Now let's salute this great country!

I made this card out of a sample postcard I had done for my Cricut demo job at Michaels long time ago.

I added it to a 6x6 piece of printed cardstock, I got from Connie and trimmed the cardstock to the right size.

I used the negative cut from a previous project as stencil and also for the sentiment inside the card:

 The USA letters, are also negative cuts from other projects, which I doodle around with red glitter marker and some rhinestones from Connie as well.

For the rest of the sentiment, I used leftover stamped sentiments on watercolor paper also from a previous project:

Most supplies are from CTMH, and some American Crafts cardstock.
I hope you like this crazy recycling/ using my stash project.
Now kindly hop on over to Shannon H-
