Pink Elephant

. . .or in this case, Butterfly.  I made this card for the Pink Elephant challenge this week, but also for a friend.  I figure you can never have too many "Praying for You" cards.  My heart is going out to my best friend.  Not only is she a couple thousand miles away, but she is dealing with her 4th upcoming deployment, and her husband's father just passed away.  I have a heavy heart for them right now.  This week's Pink Elephant challenge was to a color challenge.  The colors are green, pink, and yellow.  My card is pretty simple, but now that I see it, I love it.  I used the stamp set Beautiful Butterfly from Clear Dollar Stamps that is a set of 16 that runs for only $14.99.  I coupled it with the Christian Sympathy set of 10 that runs for $9.99.  Both are so beautiful on their own or together and so very versatile.  I also got a chance to use a new Labels 4 Nestabilities that I got for my birthday, and the pearls were a birthday gift as well from a new friend.  I know. . .I am a blessed lady :D
