Cut Up Up Challenges #13: Pinterest Inspired

Happy Friday everyone!  Today we have an awesome challenge over at Cut It Up Challenges. Today's challenge is called Pinterest Inspired. I am sure most of you are a "Pinner!"  If not I will give you a warning. This site is OVERLOAD addiction.  So many amazing ideas and a great way to keep them all safe instead of using bookmarks. For today's challenge you are to create a paper project that was inspired by something you saw on Pinterest.  Don't have Pinterest? Don't worry you can still play, just use inspiration from a fellow crafter or someone you follow in blogging world.  It is very important though, please give credit to the original source in your blog post by providing a link to their project.  Remember to use a die cut somewhere in your project.
For my inspiration, I chose to give my own take on a wonderful Patriotic card from a fellow Canadian Crafter.  I have been a long time follower of her and saw this on Pinterest and knew immediately that I wanted to do it.  Her name is Cindy and you can find her wonderful blog here.
Here is her original creation found here, and this is what Cindy created.

This is my take on her wonderful design. I used Create a Critter, Go Canada and Doodlecharms cartridges.

Isn't that just sweet!
