February Celebration

The challenge at the Kraft Journal, which starts today is Any February Celebration.  I chose Presidents' Day.  No, I don't send out Presidents' Day cards, but I do make cards for OWH and many of those are patriotic in nature.  So I took Presidents' Day as my jumping off point.
I started with a Light Kraft Cardstock base. From some of my stash, I tore a piece of ephemera paper by TJ Designs which has the red, white, blue postal stripes.  The letters, "USA" are Tim Holz idea-ology stickers.  This collection is no longer available at the Kraft Outlet, but there are many other Tim Holz collections to choose from.  The letters were put onto small Scalloped Grungy Prim Tags.  I replaced the strings with Red Baker's Twine and hung those from a string of blue Dark Jewel Hemp Cord.  I added a few stars - some are paper, some are brads.  See those TINY little stars?  They are brads!    Then to just give a finishing touch, I added a piece of Air Mail Washi Tape.  It took me a long time to get into washi tape - now I love it.
How will you interpret February Celebrations?  We, at the Kraft Journal, hope you will accept our challenge and come over and play.
