Red, White and Blue Canary

There are quite a few red, white and blue challenges around at the moment so I thought I'd make a card following the colour scheme. This will be only the second one I've made this year as it's not the colour combo I would normally go for.
First off I coloured the Saturated Canary image in blue and red, but that ended up in the bin and I decided to stick to red and white with a blue balloon. The backing paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and the flowers are Craftime Colour Connection (bought especially for ths card). I used Cheery Lynn dies B117 Flourish and DL112 butterfly. I do have a couple more Cheery Lynn dies, but seem to end up using these two all the time!!  The gems and lace were from my stash

The photo shows the card a bit lighter than it actually is.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Cheery Lynn Designs challenge 'Red, White and Blue'
Saturated Canary challenge 'Red, White and Blue'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'Easy as 1-2-3' (1 butterfly, 2 flowers, 3 gems)
Little Claire's Designs challenge 'Jubilee Red, White and Blue'
Card Makin' Mamas challenge  'Red, White and Blue'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Happy Biirthday'
Whoopsi Daisy challenge 'Use those swirls'

Thanks for dropping by and hope you have a good weekend
