red, white and blue

Hi everybody!
hope you're well!
I am on my last day being a 37 year old. I am looking forward to being spoilt tomorrow starting with buns at work! yum yum! and then ice cream in the afternoon with my wee boy and my friend and her wee girl!
I have made this card for my friend whose husband is in the RAF and they're moving back to the Uk from Denmark-can't wait!
i used a kanban card blank with a fold and cut already in it.

The image is a free digi and the tickets are from whimsey stamps. The banner is made using a stencil I got free with a mag and the papers are DCWV.
I would like to wish all Americans a Happy Independence Day-I love sharing my birthday with it!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
hope you have a fab evening!
