How to: celebrate in red, white and blue

Hello everyone, I hope your 4th July was an amazing day and you are in a good shape today. Referring to yesterday's colors, I created my DT card for the new challenge at
which is
Yes, as simple as that. All you need to do is to use some flowers, anywhere you want.
The sponsor for this challenge is

Here's my DT card, which is a B'day card infact, but I am using the 'celebration' colors.
This adorable image is a sponsor's digi 'Amalia's daisy crown'. It is colored with Promarkers and I added some doodling all around.
This 'ribbon' is a piece of linen fabric I bought in a second hand store. I just bought a linen shirt (for the price of peanuts) and cut it into pieces. Now I am having a pile of such 'ribbons'. I added two twines and made a pleating. To be honest I am not that smart by myself, I have been inspired by THIS card, this is one of my favourite blogs and designers.
The sentiment says 'For your B'day' and it's a rubber stamp.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
