SAM Challenge #2-American Crafts Canisters

It was my turn to pick the weekly SAM Challenge. A couple of months ago I scored some really great deals at Big Lots. One of the items were the American Crafts canisters embellishments. All the canisters were different with either foam, felt, plastic and chipboard shaped embellishments with different themes. Because we had so many of these canisters I thought it be a good challenge. I didn't want to think I just bought these on a whim and because they were so cheap. I wanted to put these embellishments to use.

SAM's card was perfect for the upcoming holiday. She used the foam curly brackets to highlight the flag. I loved how she used the cute button letters to spell out FREEDOM. I feel proud to be an American! :o)
I used the plastic and foam shapes to make flowers. The blue piece was a bucket but I cut the handle off and used it as a pot. I've noticed I've been using a lot of flowers on my cards. I must be on this flower kick.

For My Friend
Next week SAM will be on vacation, so we postponed our challenge until she returns.

Mata ne!
