 Hi friends!

Kelly here with our last challenge for June and

I hope you've enjoyed playing in the challenges!

June 20 is National Eagle Day in the USA so let’s celebrate this national symbol.

It’s a time set aside raise awareness about the bald eagle

and to preserve the bird's natural habitat.

Please use an eagle (or bird if you don't have an eagle) on your card/project

to celebrate this winged treasure!

For my card I  first used an old favorite SU background stamp I have had for years as the background. Then I inked up an embossing folder that had stripes with blue distressed oxide ink. I ran it through my Big Shot and with my fabulous blending brushes added the red. I cut my eagle silhouette out of black paper using one of the patterns on my Cricut Joy. I punched out the silver stars and glued them on. The eagle has dimensionals behind him. This is going to be a great card to send someone for the 4th of July.

You can find all the other team member's cards over on the CCEE blogsite found here:

We'd love to have you play along with us on this or any of our challenges. 

I am also entering this card in the DL Challenges this week as the criteria is red, white, and blue.
