MOJO297 ~ I Love Freedom ~

Good morning!  Thanks for bearing with me as I get back in the routine of crafting!  As you read this, my hubby will be heading home from rehab after having a bilateral knee replacement.  OUCH!!!  I'm excited to get him home after almost two weeks of being away!  The first week was spent at his bedside.  He had a rough time with surgery and was pretty sick for a few days.  Thankfully, a great many prayers were answered and he is doing well.  Now, I just have to keep the big ole Saints from trying to  make a human pinball out of him...  :-) 
 
Today, I have a sketch inspired card using Our Daily Bread Designs' set, Some Gave All.

 
I used a bit of burlap behind the eagle for added texture.  The colors are really bright on this card.  I wanted to add more embellishments but was afraid of getting it too busy.  :-(
 
  I stamped and colored the eagle image on Copic compatible paper and then fussy cut it.  I added a bit of stickles to each individual star for interest.  The sentiment, embossed with a sand color EP, is on coordinating DP.  I used a paper edger punch to create the scallops behind the panel. 
 
Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!
