Patriotic Star Center Piece

Today I am sharing a patriotic centerpiece that I made using SVG Attic files.  They are having a contest for the month of July and the theme is Anything Goes.  Go HERE to see the contest guidelines and to enter your projects!  You have a chance to win one of three gift cards to the SVG Attic store!
 The star base was made from Uncle Sam's Party Kit and all of the elements inside the star are from the card box file in the Festive Fourth set.  The patterned paper I used is The Paper Studio's Vintage Nation stack.  I also used DCWV's Glitzy Glitter for the silver glitter paper...it cuts like a charm in my Cameo!
Here is a close up of the center elements.  I added a heavy wire to them and stuck them into a small piece of floral foam in the base.  I added silver gift shred over the top of that and knotted some red, white and blue ribbons around the wires and it was done :)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
