My first thought for this challenge was my passion for music and the color lavendar! My FAVORITE song is: "I will Praise You in the Storm" sung by Casting Crowns. When my middle son was critically injured in a car accident, I clung to this song.....this was my Lifeline so to speak. The River City Rubberworks stamp, "The Lord Calms" is my FAVORITE stamp.....ever and comes pretty close to the words of the Casting Crowns song.
Therefore, I Cuttlebugged's (My FAVORITE new toy) the music bg on my FAVORITE color lavendar cs and stamped my FAVORITE stamp in Versamark and heat embossed with my FAVORITE color ep (Amythest) also onto lavendar cs. I matted the sentiment onto a dark purple cs. I used my FAVORITE color prima, lavendar, of course, and topped off with a pretty green smaller prima and a lavendar bling. I found two of these lavendar thingys and placed on the sentiment panel.
I used my new FAVORITE punch, which is butterflies, to punch three dark purple butterflies. I added four corner things cut from the dark purple cs. I used my FAVORITE white organdy ribbon, then a strip of dark purple cs, then my next FAVORITE skinny lavendar organdy ribbon for the bow.
That's it! All of my FAVORITES on one card. Although I have many more FAVORITES, I do think I like these the best! This card demonstrates my faith, my favorite color and my passion for music.
What do you think?

Oh I love every element on this card! The sentiment is so wonderful... I have to try to find it, because with the church CARE ministry... that's a sentiment I could use often. It's so true... and having come through a similar accident myslef, I can so relate to your words. That song is one of my favorites as well! Glad you got your CB and this is one great card!
