American Eagle

Hey everyone. I hope you all are having a fabulous Wednesday.

I have a patriotic card to share with you today using the "American Eagle" image that was recently released by Meljen's Designs. I wanted to  keep the card as simple as I could so all I did was layer red, white and blue cardstock, add a few brads and the star ribbon. It came out better than my original plan.


Thanks for stopping by today.

Catch the Bug - Red, White & Blue and ribbon
My Sheri Crafts - Independance Day or Canada Day

I haven't seen anything like this ...a very stunning card. Yes, sometimes simple and clean lines are the best and you made a great call by doing this. Let the eagle take the main focus. Meljen (Melissa) puts out so pretty and cute images.
