   To create my card I used "Soaring High" by Nina B Design,which is FREE this month with a $50 purchase! Here is the full set:



                   I can't begin to tell you how much I LOVE this set! The font, and the beautiful birds. sigh.

   I stamped one of the large doves using Latte pigment ink from A Muse Studio. I stamped the sentiment over it using Early Espresso by SU. I distressed the edges with more Lattte. and added a machine stitched border. I added twine, and a wooden button. Finally I mounted the top layer on woodgrain card stock by Core'dinations.
   
    I kept this card CAS, because the sentiment is just so pretty, and can stand alone by itself, along with a faintly stamped eagle.  I hope you like my card!  If you started the hop from the beginning then thank you so much for hopping with us today! If you just arrived here, then you will want to click HERE to go back to the beginning and see the amazing creations the rest of the DT made for you today!  Thanks for stopping by!

The simple design of your card is perfect for such a wonderful sentiment. I really like how you stamped the bird in the light ink and then overstamped the sentiment.
