Majestic Eagle

We live in an area of the country where there are quite a few bald eagles.  I love to see them soaring over our fields or sitting in a tree near our property.  They are so majestic, so fierce, so powerful, and HUGE when you see them up close.  I don't like what is happening to our country.  My prayer is that the USA will continue to live up to the characteristics of this symbol.
This is a pre-colored digital image by Doodle Pantry
 Here is the Card Patterns sketch I used:

I made the background by stamping with one of the star stamps from the GKD set called "Stars".  Embossed them with white EP and then ran the cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.
The gold stars are wood stars that I painted with gold paint and then added gems.
Striped paper is GKD digital paper.
I think this will be a great card to send to one of our heroes via OWH expressing my gratitude for his/ her service.
