Cricut 360 Challenge # 11 For a Hero Commemorating 9/11

Good Morning,
Today I'm sharing with you a card made for this week's challenge at Cricut 360. This week's theme is for a hero, commemorating 9/11. So when I was thinking of the design for this card, I had so many parts of 9/11/01 tragedy in my head...I cant believe it will be ten years now. I'm sure to those who lost loved ones it still seems like yesterday. :(
So since I wanted to add so many elements onto a here is what I decided to add: the city, the twin towers lighting in blue, the firemen and policemen who are just some of the heroes, clouds, hearts with an American theme, roses in front of the buildings, and yellow ribbons. I sure didn't think i would be able to get this all on one formal card, which is how the side step card came into place. It is a 5 1/2 x 10 1/2 card and really easy to make...there are many tutorials out there on U Tube. I used many cricut cartridges for this is the list: Everyday Paper Dolls, George Basic Shapes, Serenade, Jasmine, Plantin Schoolbook and Cuttlebug embossing plate Script Texture. This card came out to be exactly what I wanted to say this 10th anniversary for our 9/11 heroes....thank you to all our heroes to this date!
God Bless all of you!
Here is a slight angle of the side step card and on the back cloud it says
"10th Year Anniversary NYC"
I hope you were not upset by this card, but to "Remember" and "Never Forget" what made all of us come together as a nation.
So hope you join us over at Cricut 360 this week for more inspiration from our DT and this week's FABULOUS PRIZE! It is from My Pink Stamper....very cool and perfect for this week's theme!
See you there!
