Happy Veteran's Day

This day we celebrate our veteran's as they have made the ultimate sacrifice.  Without them, we wouldn't have the freedom that we do.  God bless them all!
 Today's card features the beautiful bald eagle, another symbol of our freedom.  I actually had made this particular card for my father - in- law  for his birthday.  I have a clear stamp set from Mint Motif that has the polka dot design, and I stamp all over my cardstock with versamark ink.  I then spread red embossing powder all over and heat embossed it, and after it cooled, I took my crimping tool, and crimped it to have a wavy texture to it.  It is kinda hard to see in the photo, but just me, it is there.  I placed my stamped image of the eagle on real red cardstock, and used the ticket punch on the ends.  I then took my choc. chip ink and gave the ends a distressed look.  I finished it off with my birthday greeting, and delivered it with a smile.
If you know someone that has served for our country, please tell them thank you, and that you appreciate their time served.  Everyone has a blessed and happy day.
