Patriotic, Manly Center Step card

This card is for my wonderful nephew.  He is turning 17 this next week.  How is it possible that these kids grow up so fast?  My nephew is such a great kid.  When we come out to visit his family, he always plays with my 12 year old son.  Which to me in todays world is rare, because a teenager sees anyone younger as a pest and annoying.  Yet, he still takes time to play and do boy things with him.  Weather it is riding on the four-wheeler or playing in the mud by the pond.  One thing is for sure, my boy always has a ton of fun with him.  So my nephew is a boy with a lot of character and just the right amount of gentleness, and roughness in him.  He is just plain a good kid.  Well, he deserves a really unique card.  So this is what I came up with.  First of all, he loves eagles, so I had to incorporate that and since his birthday is right after the 4th, I had to do something patriotic in theme.  So this is what I came up with.  I stamped the eagle on velum paper and laid it over the paper the music to "God Bless America".  Oh, I love how this card turned out so much.  I know that he will like it too!

I used:
Potpourri Basket
Printing Press
Red & Blue Cardstock
DCWV the glitter cardstock stack
Printed Music Sheet and distressed it
Cuttlebug folder Polka Dots
Star Brad
Red Grommets
Eagle Stamp Hobby Lobby
The words are computer generated
Tag punch 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
