Two Crazy Crafter ATC Blog Hop

Now for my Card:)

My card first off is dedicated to my husband and brother. Both who proudly serve in our US Army. My brother just returned this week from another tour in Afghanistan.Thank you both for your dedication and service. With out men and women like you we could not live the life we do:)

Now for my card I started off with a blue 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 base and inked the edges
I added a red 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inner card also inking those edges to make them appear aged.
I then added my ripped flag which I made from Vintage flag stripe and God Bless America By Paper Studio. I inked the edges i the ripped paper to make them appear aged also.
I then quilled my eagle and aded him to the top of the flag. 
I ripped the word America off the God bless america Paper added that to the top.
Added star brads to the corners to finish off the card.

I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Now for some fun Blog candy:) Leave a comment with an email to get ahold of you if you win 
and become a follower. I will choose the winner on July 6th after the long weekend.

I love your ATC - I especially love your quilled eagle.

I love quilling as an art form - been doing it myself for some 30 odd years. I'm so glad to see someone else who uses quilling on there cards.

I didn't use it on this patriotic one but have used it on others I've made.


Jenn said...

Melissa, your ATC is amazing as usual! I just love the quilling you have done.
Please tell your brother and husband THANK YOU from me!!

Love your ATC - and the dedication! Just perfect! That eagle is really something! Isn't this blog hop fun? I'm just now visiting around & will be back since I've joined your followers. Your "moon" ATC is lovely - with the curtains, etc. Reminds me of "Goodnight, Moon" too.
Have a wonderful July 4th celebration!
