MME Scripture Notecard #4

Here's another simple Scripture notecard that I'm making for sets of 10 notecards for the craft fairs in area churches this fall. This one has some bulkier embellishments.

I chose this color scheme from Inspired By:




I love this verse about God being a sun and shield for those of us who walk uprightly in Him. I think of the sun being a reference to the light, allowing us to see the direction we should take. The shield is a beautiful reference to the way He protects us. It has the promise, too, of God giving us His grace, which I know I need to get through each day - and to be able to walk uprightly as the verse says! Thanks to His grace and the salvation we have in Christ, we will be with Him someday in Glory.  The last promise is that He will give us what is good ("no good thing will He withhold") if we walk uprightly. We don't do this in our own strength or goodness, but by Christ's Spirit that lives in us as believers.


The verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs and the flower is from Verve's "Hope Blooms." I I stamped it with CTMH Sunset and colored it with Copics (YR61, YR68, RV14).  The card base is one of the My Mind's Eye "Bright Basics."


I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments Challenge #88 - Any Sentiment
Going Grey with Scrap creations - polka dots
Inspired By #87 - color palette above
Loves Rubber Stamps #69 - Have a Sentiment on the Front
Word Art Wednesday #96 - Anything goes with Scripture or uplifting sentiment

The colors should not be happy together but they have created a symphony. This is really a GREAT card.
