Happy July 4th Card

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Our internet provider problems seem to be fixed (knock on wood) but I am so behind visiting blogs. I did manage a little bit of time in my craft room to make a card to enter into a few challenges.
The blue base is DCWV paper from Tradewinds. The white is textured cardstock from The Paper Studio. I embossed it with the Distressed Stripes folder and then a 2x2 square with Swiss Dots to make it kinda look like a flag. I distressed the edges and added ribbon from Hobby Lobby and crystals with my iRock. The plane is from Stand and Salute. I used my Gypsy to cut stars from George and Basic Shapes and the USA from Base Camp into the side of the plane. I attached it with foam dots and added scrappy chic stickers for Happy July 4 from Me and My Big Ideas.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great evening :D
