USA Wall Hanging-H2H Challenge

For some reason, I have very few 4th of July decorations for my home.  I decided to add to my measly collection when I saw the Color Challenge at  The challenge is to use Barn Red, Bamboo and any Blue in your project. 

I chose Moonstruck as my blue to brighten up the other 2 colors.  I had a few leftover pieces from the Mix &
Mingle album and decided to put them to good use as a wall hanging.  I used 2 clear acrylic and 1 chipboard piece.  You can click on the image to see it more clearly.  I added white to the mix by embossing some of the stars.  The other stars were either stamped or cut out of the patterned paper that I also used for the letters.  I am happy with my project and hope you enjoy it as well!
