Majestic and Beautiful

Look what was in a tree near our house Sunday morning.

He has been visiting that tree all week but this was the first day with a blue sky.  I love seeing the Bald Eagles and we see the most in February.  Often there is a mature one and a young one.  They don't get their white feathers for several years so you can tell which one is the young one.  Did you know that  "bald" really comes from a Latin word that means "white headed". 
So this photo inspired me to make a card today.

The image, papers, and sentiment are all by Doodle Pantry.   
You must check out Laurie Wilson's store.  She has some wonderful new free digital images besides all her fantastic digital sets for sale.  And I love her colored images.  This eagle is one of those she has colored.  Talk about a quick card - printed everything, cut, glued and I was done.  Of course, this card is going to one of our deployed Heroes in my next box to OWH.

The sketch is last week's sketch at Tuesday Morning's Sketches
Other Challenges:
Designer's Choice - bright colors
Craft Us Crazy - cutting machine (Cuttlebug)
CASual Friday - song inspiration (America the Beautiful)
