These two cards were made for a swap, and I was quite pleased with how they turned out. The largest star is chipboard and, yes, it could have been sanded a little more. Oops! When my swappers decided on a patriotic theme, I knew just what I wanted to make! These spiral thingies definitely challenge me, but I love them! You can glue just about anything to them, and who wouldn't go "Ooooh!" when they open a card like this?
