Patriotic FireCracker Bookmark/Tag

Created this Patriotic FireCracker Bookmark/Tag using Tim Holtz FireCracker embossing border.

Stamped Hero Arts sentiment.

Punched stars. Inked white cardstock with gold ink to show thru where the stars were punched. Added ribbon. Frayed the ribbon. 

I'm still reading Jane Eyre which I started on 6/12. I'm currently on chapter 20. I was not sure that I would get past the first couple chapters but it got interesting after Jane left the school where she was for 8 yrs and became a governess to the 11 yr old girl of Mr. Rochester.
