simple 4th of July card and Calendar page

Here's what I made with this sketch - a Fourth of July Card. I changed the circle to an oval to fit my color pencil image. And since I used a ribbon that I got at Target, the horizontal element lost some width (wish it was that easy for me to lose width - LOL) The red background is from Lindsay's digital stuff (http://www.shophandmade.com/Store/Lindsay). I used Elegant Black and White kit but printed it on red so I guess that makes it Elegant Red and Black. :) I then mounted it all on light blue cardstock. EDITED to add: I used gold paint for the sparks on the firecrackers.
This calendar page is accompanying it. I'm still using the same green/magenta/ etc papers but I'm using Red/White/Blue accents and the same ribbon on the card.
