Independence Day Blog Hop by Team A DT for PPbN

If you're looking for Day 2 of the Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop, please click here!!!!

Welcome to the Independence Day Blog Hop of Paper Piecing by Nikki's DT Team A.  Today we're showing off different ways to make projects using the Independence Day pattern collection.

Mama LoveBug aka Pam is up first with an Independence Day pocket card using the Uncle Sam Bear, a Sizzix cut ribbon, some paper I made from the collection (see last pic), a few sentiments from SU and Pink By Design, flag paper, and various other things like Stickles - love them!

Here's Uncle Sam Bear - I'm linking this to Homespun Affair Challenge at www.ahomespunaffair.blogspot.com

The base of the card

The paper I made for the base from this same collection.

 And the insert

Wasn't Mama's card just too cute for words? LOVE IT!!! :) For my project I  used the same piecing from the collection and had him hold one of the stars from the set too! I used the DCWV stack "Summer Dreams" for the rosette and background, some ribbon from my stash and red glitter stars from "American Crafts" and the stamp is from KinderStampo's "Vintage Birthday" set!!! Hope you like my card!!!
