MME Scripture Notecard #3

Introduction for all 10 Cards: After I'd been in the hospital a few days I went through crafting withdrawal. So today I began a project to make a bunch of Scripture notecards for my upcoming craft fairs in local churches. I wanted to keep them fairly flat, clean and simple for anyone who likes to send notes in the mail. I had to resist the temptation to keep adding more elements or embellishments. I'm using the My Mind's Eye "Bright Basics" as the base for each card in the set. FYI for other craft fair enthusiasts, The card bases come in a box of 50, with five each of ten designs for about $6 with a Michael's coupon. So I'm preparing five card boxes with ten cards in each set.

The verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs. The swallowtail butterfly is an oldie from Close To My Heart. Where we live swallowtails are either yellow or dark blut/purplish. I colored mine yellow with a Copic marker Y13. The ribbon is Michael's. I used this sketch from Just Us Girls for this week:
