Red, White and Blue challenge card

I needed a birthday card this week and thought it would be fun to make it to a challenge instead of my normal routine - i.e. make a card and then see if it will fit a challenge. Have to say that this way is much easier LOL.

I used one of my LOTV cute squares and just darkened the red with a Promarker. I cut a 6x6 base of white linen textured card and covered that with Dovecraft blue spotty paper. Some red ribbon and a red brad from stash and the red doily was cut with a Marianne die. I used my La-La-Land banner die again with a paler blue Dovecraft paper and added a few gems for some sparkle. Oh and a few touches here and there with my trusty glitter pen.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Red, White & Blue Challenge
One Stop Craft Challenge 233 - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!
