This week our design challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge is to make an Easter themed project. I have used The beautiful Flower Border cut with a Spellbinders Label die as a base for the beautiful blossoms from The Lord Has Risen set. Behind that is lightly stamped the Amazing Grace Hymn as a background.
