My design for today features Our Daily Bread Designs "Easter Blessings." I've always loved this fresh and pretty floral image, as well as the lovely fonts used for the Bible verse and sentiments:









Basic creamy cardstock was used throughout, with added texture and layers for interest. This is the first time that I used the 

Creamy pearls and ribbon add a final touch.
