My first instinct was to put this panel on a white base, but it really was too subtle for that and looked very bland. The black mat and Papertrey aqua mist base frame the subtle panel with a bit more drama and draw attention to the sentiment and the very soft backdrop. It gives the sense of being enclosed, centered, protected by God. At least, that's what I was going for.
The bling needs no explanation.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
