When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

For the scene I created,  I took a sticky note and punched a 1-1/4 inch circle out and laid that on my white CS, and then I used a inkabilities sponge on a handle, and started sponging in the sky with Distress ink (iced Spruce) I wanted to keep it as a misty look, as much as possible, I then sponged some yellow, and a hint of pink, and edged it with more iced spruce and navy...I then stamped the trees, swirled more iced spruce, and edged it all with navy and iced spruce. I coloured the eagle with copics.

ODBD stamps used  On Eagle's Wings
Paper: Navy, WW, Manga for eagle, 
Ink: Copics, Distress Iced Spruce, Navy, Saffron, Regal Rose, Memento Black
Accessories: Sticky Note, Scissors, Dimensionals.

Oh, how I love this Jan! This is one of my favorite sets and I LOVE how you put that fabulous moon on there. Beautifully done!

Jan this is sooo beautiful! I love this set and love the eagle! Last year I watched the Decorah Eagles nesting and the little eaglets growing up until they fledged. It was the most amazing thing! I worried for them when it snowed... got frustrated with the big one who got all the food and fretted over the little one I just knew wasn't going to make it! LOL! Anyway... I digress... your card is stunning! Love how you did the bg with the big full moon! Just beautiful!!!
