Red, White and Bue Challenges!

blueI decided to play at two challenges, which I combined.  This is for S.W.A.T.'s Red, White, and Blue Challenge and is also for Scrap Our Stash's Red, White and Blue challenge!

The rules for SOS were a bit more specific:
                        Create a LAYOUT (any theme) using your stash of RED WHITE and BLUE
papers and embellies. 
 Kraft is the ONLY other color you can use with these colors. 
and....
you MUST include (3) or more Pre-made STAR embellishments of your choice!
 (Brads, buttons, eyelets, cardstock stickers, chipboard, etc)

Here is what I made.


I did not use the kraft paper that SOS allowed because S.W.A.T. did not mention using any other colors.  My pre-made star embellishments are old Rusty Pickle chipboard, clear Heidi Swapp Ghost shapes, which I stamped so that it could be seen; a rustic star brad that I colored dark blue with Stazon, and two Basic Grey chippies.
