Canada Day

Wow how time files...
This is my last post with Creative Cutting Challenge!
It has been a wonderful experience and has stretched my way of crafting in ways I didn't know were possible.  Thank you Cindy.

The theme this challenge is Patriotic
Well being from Canada here it is.
I used Creative Pointe's Fall Leaves Cut Pattern.  The maple leaf of course is the perfect icon for Canada
I then cut out a 4" circle and two 1/3 circles for the edges.  Used some garden twine and topped it off with Red and white fabric strips.
The center piece which in my mind was wonderful as well as the inspiration that I got
the idea from You can see the tutorial here Well mine is the same idea right?
I used Adventure Canada Stamp CTMH D1513 for the map.  All of the flowers are handmade from some pages from a book I am altering.  Of course there is Creative Points maple leaf and a cute little chalkboard heart I got from Michaels.  Too busy perhaps...
