OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop 2014


Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop for 2014!
 I created this card using OWH sketch #214.  It was perfect for the patriotic washi tape that I just got from Oriental Trading Co.  I wrapped some trendy twine around the embossed kraft layer and added stars in 1", .75" and .6" with thin foam tape.  This thin foam tape is the perfect depth for OWH cards!  The stamp is from Whimsy Stamps.
I hope you enjoy hopping with all the creative ladies in this blog hop!  Now head on back to the OWH Blog Hop home page to check out all of the other wonderful cards!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
