Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge Players the color challenge of Red, White and Blue, if you'd like to play along, just leave a direct link to your blog/gallery in the comments.

I used the Mono Dies Background from the TJNL to create the stars background, using the Cuttlebug Stars Folder and the small Star Punch.  The images are both from Our Daily Bread Designs God Bless America set.  The sentiment is stamped in Black, then I added the Flag using Ranger Distress Ink in Barn Red.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs
Ink - Black, Ranger Distress Ink Barn Red
Card Stock - Red, Blue, White
Other - Cuttlebug Stars Folder, Big Shot, Star Punch
