In Thy Face I see HONOR, TRUTH, & LOYALTY


Here is my submission for Paper Playtime's Challenge #2.
I made this card for my husband.  He loves Eagles.
(It's one of the 6 tattoos he has - and looks pretty much like this one - an eagle waiting to land).
And in my husband's face I see all those things:
HONOR, TRUTH, & LOYALTY.
The theme for Paper Playtime Challenge #2 is:
IN THY FACE I SEE 
HONOR, TRUTH, & LOYALTY

Card base Yellow (Tom's favorite color) from Value Pack pre-scored for easy folding!
Background dark blue paper cut @ 5 1/4" x 4"
Background swirly blue mat cut @ 5" x 3 3/4"
Eagle cut @ 3 1/2" & 4 1/2" 
Pop dots used to stack Eagles.
Love & Kisses clear stamps from Heidi Grace
Blue & Yellow star brads from Recollections
Ribbon from Michael's

This was a simple card to make.
I think the meaning it holds goes way beyond any "beauty" is may have.

Come play with us at Paper Playtime!
It's FUN!

How great is this to make a card with such meaning behind it! I'll bet your husband is truly touched when he gets it. You should enter this is the technique challenge on splitcoast stampers - it's perfect for that challenge!
