Independence Day Blogskip

 
 
Happy Independence Day! Today, Tombow is blog "skipping" with  Operation Write Home. If you have just come from Jan@Simply Handrafted's blog, you are in the right place. If not, be sure to start at the beginning HERE.
 
I used OWH's sketch #171 for my card.
171
 
I used Tombow's Mono Adhesive Permanent to adhere the designer paper strips to the card base. The start was cut with my Cricut. I cut 3 of scrap cardstock and one of designer paper and adhered them all together with Mono Adhesive Dots. "Thank you" in stamped on the star. After tying the jute around the star I adhered it to the card front.
