Seize the Birthday Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Welcome to another challenge at Seize the Birthday
Joann is our host as she chose this theme.   

  Our "Toppings" option this time is...Red, White & Blue (JoAnn)
I think this is an appropriate color theme for this time of year.  Have fun

But if you are not a toppings kind of personJust make it a birthday card and that will work too! 
Here is my card for your inspiration.

Supplies for this card are: Gina K Designs cardstock in Cherry Red and White
Gina D Designs stencil Water Droplets
Paper Trey INk Simple Stems
Distress Oxides ink in Faded Jeans and Fired Brick.
Greetery Stamp and die Stamped and Sealed.
