For my card, I used the soon-to-be-released "Regal and Proud" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. I stamped the eagle with Tim Holtz distress inks then colored it with Copic markers. I used a Stampin Up Square Lattice embossing folder on the three of the layers. The background layer is embossed with a star embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The papers used for this card are Corn Husk, Hazelnut Tan, and Desert Sand from Mark's Finest Papers, and Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso from Stampin Up. I completed the card by adding a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers and several antique brads.
