Here is my creation using the Don't Worry release from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I just love the floral image and the butterfly in this set along with the awesome verses and sentiments.  I decided to go with a more elegant look on my creation using a lot of white and my Spellbinders Lotus borders dies.  The image is colored with copics.  The sky is sponged.  This card will be used for my Mom's Birthday. Mom loves flowers so I think she will enjoy this.
