Another Hero Card for OWH


Recently I made a couple cards with this Tim Holtz Sizzix die digging it out of my often overlooked stash. I decided to make another card with it for the OWH midweek throwdown - which is to make a card to thank one of our heroes for serving. I used a snippet of red to cut the flag, then used snippets of text dsp to make the stripes. The field of stars is a snippet of polka dot paper I had in my stash too. The die also comes with connected stars, so I cut  4 of them, and used 4 epoxy stickers I've had forever to make the sentiment. The dsp is from SU! retired and I've been trying to use it up little by little. I really like how this turned out and I may make a few more before I put this die away for another long rest :)

I'm also taking this one over to the Snippets Playground #132.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a wonderful Friday!!
