Stars & Stripes Tag

Created this Tag with a stars & stripes theme. 

Used Kraft brown cardstock for base. Used Tim Holtz Stars stencil with TH texture paste. Paper pieced & distressed TH Mini Old Glory. Stamped Hero Arts sentiment. Cut out sentiment tag with TH Labels die. Added some red/white/blue cord.
