Patriotic Flag Stars & Stripes Card

Used one of my fav Tim Holtz dies, Mini Old Glory Flag, along with a Cricut cartridge (used multiple cuts for blue/red letter sentiment on front), stamps & patriotic colors to make this Card. On the back I die cut a Ticket, stamped some stars on it (using MISTI makes it easy by flipping the piece to stamp 2nd row of stars), stamped my name (using a stamp a friend gave me that I use to stamp backs of my handmade cards), adhered some washi tape on red cardstock and used a washi tape die cut to die cut the washi tape.
