Thank you for your Service & Sacrifice

Our nephew can get mail at bootcamp now! Perfect opportunity to create some cards just for him. This one pulled out some of my original craft supplies. The star is from good old George. The original cartridge that came with my little personal Cricut back in 2006! The background on the kraft paper is embossed with Provo Craft embossing folder simply called Stars. I got the 3D effect by using my Bone Folder and folding the flat star on each point. I put pop dots on each point and a bit of cotten in the center so it would retain its' shape. I used chalk on the folds. The sentiment is from one of my treasured prizes from another challenge. Yankee Doodle Dandy from Scrappy Moms. It has some great sentiments.
 This is perfect for the Star Challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot.
Entered in the following challenges:
