Red, White and Blue Birthday Card

Hey everyone,
Happy 4th of July Weekend.  It is fast approaching!
Today, I am sharing a card I created for a couple of card challenges:

I love this week's sketch! 
I was inspired by the bouquet of red, white and blue roses.
"Topping" Option is Red, White and Blue
Create a Project using Flowers
Here's my card:
I had these little flowers on my desk, so I decided to incorporate them on my card.
