Red, white and blue Christmas

As it was Canada Day on 1 July and is Independence Day in the States tomorrow, there are, understandably, a lot of challenges around atm that feature a patriotic theme, particularly with the colour combo of red, white and blue. These colours were also the theme for last Sunday's Sunday's with Santa on Facebook, so I've made a Christmas card with those colours, for these challenges:

Ann's creative nook 136: the colours of America - red, white and blue
Come and get it: patriotic - red, white and blue
I did it: patriotic - red, white and blue
Paper issues: red, white and blue
