This is absolutely beautiful..The contrast of white and blue is awesome. I adore that flower die-cut. I am so glad you joined us in our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. We are beginning another challenge today so, hope you link with us again. Leaving you an inspirational verse as declared by Jesus to them that believe in John 6:39 and it says, "And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. " Have a blessed week!
