These are wonderful! I love your coloring on the eagle - very nice~

carrie said...

Both great cards, but I especially like the color and detail of the Congratulations card. This card could easily be used for a male too.

Joanne Travis said...

So different and both so beautiful! Love what you have done with this set, very creative!

Heather said...

Love the silhouette look. Heather:)

Lois said...

Both of these are wonderful, Anne. I like the embossing on that lovely black & white one.

wendyp said...

Beautiful cards! Great color combos!!

Oh Wow, that eagle has been looking so mean, to me, but you made him look regal and now I have to have him!

Emily Keaton said...

Beautiful cards, Anne! I love how you composed your eagle card--and you got to use some RED!!

Julia Aston said...

Very 'regal' cards Anne! love the stars framing that wonderful eagle head and the embossing looks super on the white and black one!

Liz Williams said...

If you get a message on here where I addressed you as Lois, it's only because I am suffering from early morning brain disfunction. These are both WOW cards, and I love the texture and how you added it to the bottom of the white card. I don't seem to be able to find that other mistaken message, but you will get a BIG laugh on me if it pops up!!

Lynn McAuley said...

Wonderful work, Anne!! You have done these gorgeous images proud!!

Patti P. said...

Love this in the patriotic colors...wonderful.

Dawn Mercedes said...

Both of these are regal! I think I hear marching music in my head...

Claudine Poch said...

Both cards are very different, but great! Love how you pulled off using argyle on the first card. It looks great!

jovialjudi said...

Fabulous Anne! And you even got that red in! That first card looks amazing in these colors actually and I am another one voting for that wonderful embossing on the second. Isn`t this the best guy set? :-)

Our Little Inspirations said...

WOW! You colored the eagle to perfection and I love the patriotic theme! I also love that you can take this stamp set and make a fantastic masculine card as well!

Theresa said...
