TH May Tag Lady Liberty

This is my version of the Tim Holtz May 2016 Tag. I did not have a woman face stamp like TH used so I used a TH Lady Liberty stamp.

Has several stars:  stamped stars, texture paste stars using stars stencil, felt stars, washi tape stars, stars ribbon, stars on flag, strs on the USA postage stamp & stars on rosette.

Learned that when using the glue gun to make a rosette it is best to use a circle from cardstock to glue on first before gluing a circle from scrapbook paper because the cardstock will be sturdier than scrapbook paper. Then put glue on bottom center of rosette, add the cardstock circle, add glue to the cardstock circle and put the scrapbook circle on top.
