The Lord is my strength Ps 118:14

 I put in two photos of the same card hoping that the slightly
angled view would give you an idea of the 3-D aspect of the design.

The base of the card is plain white card stock.
Over that is a embossing folder textured layer that is
on lavender card stock.  The narrow border is cut 
evenly and to perfection using Perfect Layers rulers.

The phrase was created by myself in Paint Shop Pro
and is from Psalm 118:14 in God's holy scriptures.
It was cut out using one of Spellbinder's Label and
a different Label was used for the layer under it.
The edges of both Labels have been lightly sponged with
a pale lavender ink.
Both Labels have flat pieces of paper egg carton
glued to the backs.  (rather than the expensive pop dots)

The butterfly is two layers.  The lovely shiny lavender
is highlighting foil (available at a beauty supply) that
has been spray glued to card stock.  I have also
tried spreading a white glue with a small squeegee on the card
stock, laying on the foil and smoothing with a brayer.   I do prefer this method.
I found I get a better adhesion.
The second layer of the butterfly is lavender vellum
The flowers are  also lavender vellum that
has been punched and shaped with a
white center attached.

The butterfly and the olive branch leaves are
dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
