Birthday Eagle


I got the idea for the design layout of this card from one that I repinned in Pinterest. I just loved this layout. The card stock is all Stampin' Up! (Ivory and Early Espresso). I used Early Espresso ink to distress the Ivory card stock and to stamp the sentiment, which is a set called Birthday Greetings from Stampin' Up! The Eagle is a cut and print file from Silhoutte's online store. I colored the Eagle some time ago, and unfortunately, did not write down the Copic marker numbers used. I did use Inkssentials white opaque gel pen on the head and in various parts of the feathers. I finished off the card with brown stitched ribbon from Gina K. Designs and brown metal nail heads from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  2. Stunning card. Looks like a picture I would want to hang on the wall in a man's home office. The matting looks like a picture frame, and I LOVE it! The eagle is colored brilliantly, of course. You are so talented! I absolutely LOVE the whole layout/design. IF my husband saw it, he would want it on his wall, also, I am sure! LOL Thanks for sharing your works of art!
