Compassion Prayer Flag

Here we are for Round 3 of the Prayer Flag Swap on craftster.
I opted for 1 partner this time instead of 2 and wound up with an awesome one in "Alwaysinmyroom"

Here's the Flag I crafted up for her:

The word "Compassion" was one she chose because a reminder is always appreciated. 
I think I need this reminder too.

When I stitch something up like this, I tend to personalize the theme into myself. 
I just told a good friend today "Crafty Therapy is the BEST therapy"!
It's helped me through some things, and I know I'm better for it.

I used a few metal scrapbook findings for the butterflies and loved the effect!
The lettering is free motion embroidery.
It's the first time I've tried stitching a word using the technique.
The word font is a Lord of the Rings-ish one I love for open block letters.

Thanks for checking it out, and may compassion rule the day!
