Patriotic Layout for Creative Cutter Room Challenge

Over at Creative Cutter Room, they had a mini patriotic blog hop for President's Day and they are having a challenge also.  They have 4 elements that you have to include in your project.  Be sure to check the blog out here: http://www.creativecutter.org/

For my layout, I got the background sheet at Michaels.  Uncle Sam is a free file from svgcuts.com and I cut him with glitter cardstock, because I thought he would look nice sparkly.  I then used George and Basic Shapes to cut the photo mats.  For the required elements, here is what I used:
3d item: Fabric yoyo with ribbon on corner of photo mat
banner/flag: I used a mini flag pick to put in Uncle Sam's hand
metal embellishment: Two metal star brads on Uncle Sam's shoes
atleast one button: I have two white star buttons (1 on hat and 1 on fabric yoyo)
