American Eagle

Today I'm sharing with you the birthday card that I created for my uncle who will be celebrating his 65th brithday next month.  My uncle has recently retired from the army so I thought this patriotic birthday card was perfect for him.  The image, American Eagle, is from Meljens.  Melissa was very sweet and gave it away as a freebie for Memorial Day.
