SSIC Love Takes Flight

Today is Sunday and this post is prescheduled as it is my birthday - I am spending the day with the family an being SPOILT!! 

 It is also time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - this week it is being hosted by our dear Sistah Kris.  The scripture she has chosen is:

 "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge." Psalm 91:4a

Kris' challenge is Things with Wings (Images of birds if you have one, otherwise... angels, butterflies, other things with wings)

Don't you love these roses - they are a free image you can find here I cut around it and layered it onto a Circe cut using a circle from the Spellbinders Ironwork Accents Die, this has been layered into a Spellbinders Lacey Circle Die.  I love the look of multi layers.  All dies have been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

The sentiment is from the retired Layers of Color The Love Chapter clear art stamp set.  Each end has been 'dove tailed' and a pearl added.  The wings are also from Layers of Color and the DP handmade using the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet clear art stamp sets.

Lace, shimmer and layers complete this card.
