I did this as an ATC (3and 1/2 x 2and 1/2 inches.)
I purchased a packet of these cards pre-cut. They are bristol board. Sadly I am finding that most of them have some kind of pressure marks on them as though someone wrote on a piece of paper on top of the card, leaving an imprint. So where I wanted to leave a soft purplish grey in the background, the imprint has shown through. I used prisma colors, but I think if I had used water colors I could have smoothed out the background.

WEDNESDAY'S WORDS ON THURSDAY
Your word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against You Psalm 119:11
This was one of the first verses I memorized when I was a teenager and hadn't been a Christian very long. Now more than 50 years later I realize how important this verse is for a Christian. We teach our children from a young age what is right and what is wrong. How do we know what God thinks is right or wrong? He is not standing there saying "No, No " all day long . To know what are God's standards of right and wrong we have to read and study the Bible because it is there that we find the consistent truths of right and wrong that God wants us to learn. This verse comes from Psalm 119 which is the longest Psalm in the Bible. Interestingly enough it is written in couplets, that is every two lines hold a complete thought. Yet even more interesting than that is the fact that every couplet tells us something about the Word of God. The Psalmist may use the words law, commandments, statutes, precepts, judgments, or testimonies but they all refer to the Word of God.
If we want to know how important God's Word is, we can try reading these couplets and see what David 's thoughts were -- all 176 of them!
