Serendipity Stamps May 20th Challenge

Hi there all! I am posting this 2 days earlier than necessary because I will be in the office for the next 2 days and do not know when I will have the chance to post again.

This is a challenge from Serendipity Stamps. It is due out May 20th and the theme is Black and White.

Another reason that I am posting earlier, is to get you all to know what you might win as a prize if you post your creation using Serendipity Stamps on May 20th. The last time I posted for the challenge, I won $25.00 worth of Serendipity Stamps...now, let me tell you that was a LOT! This was one image that I just loved, because of the sentiment. I cannot wait to ink up the other stamps I received! And...I would love to win again, but I wanted to give you a heads-up on the challenge so you would have a chance to win too!

I used black card stock and embossed it with a Cuttle Bug folder that, sry...I do not know the name of then used Doily Dies DL 101 that I purchased from Joan's Gardens using white text paper from Paper and More. I then used my Petite Scalloped Nesties and heat embossed the sentiment with white EB...I added pearls and MS butterfly punched butterflies.

I have a special reason for this card too...my best friend has a granddaughter who has Spina Bifida and she has been in the hospital with surgery. She almost died on the operating table...but God saw her through that turmoil. I told my friend, Lynda, that I believe in "prayer in numbers" and I asked my family and my friends to pray for Jessica. I am blessed, today Jessica is doing well and eating too. Amazing what prayer can wrought!!

Thank you for sharing this simple creation...and Please go by Serendipity Stamps if you want to win some amazing stamps! Remember the date is May 20th! I KNOW you will love what you see there!!

I always love to see your close ups, Velta. How beautiful this card is in black and white! Love the embossing folder, doily, and the pretty layered butterfly. Couldn't be a more appropriate quote for the circumstances. I hope your friend's daughter continues to do well. That must have been a most frightening day for the family, bless their hearts.
