Red, white and blue birthday card

I've made this card using Hero Arts stamps and the new, gorgeous Sizzix flourish I bought the other week. Combining two of the flourishes gives this lovely long swirl. You may be able to make out that the sentiment has been double stamped - if you look at it for too long it makes you feel a bit woozy! The card has a bit of bling with a great big jewel in the flower centre, courtesy of Poundlands. I made the scallop edges with a fabulously useful Colour My World template, and used my cute wee John Lewis sewing machine to stitch around the edges.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl - red, white and blue 
Papertake Weekly - spots n stripes
The Secret Crafter - stitching
My Mum's Craft Shop - all that glitters
Incy Wincy Designs - bright and bold
