Patriotic Thank You

I had to make this's my way of somehow showing my appreciation and thanking all those that risk their lives and their families. Thank you!
The idea was to tie a yellow ribbon around the tree, so I embossed the blue piece in a wood embossing folder and tied the ribbon around it.  I first punched out the stars from the top layer and then stamped the bottom layer. I used dimensionals to give it some depth.  The yellow "bursts" were made by using VersaMark and Daffodil Delight together.  I mixed clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds for a bit more shine.  Enjoy!
XOXO Gisela
