And I Said, Oh That I Had Wings Like A Dove!

for then would I fly away, and be at rest! Psalm 55:6

This idea of flying away 
was on my mind while making this card. I have fallen in love with this Prima Printery Collection 8x8 Paper Stack. If you flip through the pad, you'll see several of these gorgeous papers printed with the dates 1865, 1877, 1880... the close of our American Civil War and just after. This one particular piece I used here says "Muster out roll... Volunteer Infantry". What amazing papers Prima has put together in this collection.

I put together several
layers, embossing one with Tim Holtz Postcard Texture Fade Embossing Folder. A bow of May Arts Brown Burlap String and a set of key charms from Charm Emporium.

The heart was cut with
a Spellbinder's die, the pocket watch is a Prima Chipboard Sticker and my dove is Sizzix #5 Bird. I sponged Vintage Photo Distress Ink on all.
I woke up today with a
dreadful headache... thus the mood to fly away! Just maybe... it will be gone by the time you read this. Have a pleasant day!

Thanks for the visit!

Hope you're feeling much better Linda! Your card is lovely. There's just something about using postal images on cards that's so appealing (at least to me). Beautiful project! Hugs!
