4th banner

Hi, all. Hope everyone is in the mood to celebrate.
It's been a crazy week. In between buying and selling vehicles, having to find and buy a new homeowners policy and our son coming in last Friday night from Florida...I got to do a little crafting. I had so many ideas but not enough time. So I was glad to get this cute (small) banner made.
Here's the recipe:
Pretty Pennants - base cut at 6.0 and layered
Stand and Salute - layered stars cut at  8.29, 7.12 and 6.06, 4th of July cut at 3.59
Independence Day - I love USA cut at 3.35 and 3.82, firecracker cut at 3.2
The roses were made with a Sizzix spiral rose die. The pinwheels are hand cut using 5" squares.
I ended up liking how it turned out. I just need more craft time.

Thanks for visiting and have a safe holiday. I'm entering this in a few challenges.
Exploring Cricut - show your red ,white and blue
My Craft Spot - 4th of July or Canada Day
FCCB - use a firecracker, sparkler etc.Hugs and God bless America and all of you. Stephanie
