Black & White

Howdy Crafters - I placed on this card - 2 wonderful dies I won from Simon Says - The first is the Hello Die and the second is the heart circle die [which has the heart coming out of the circle so either can be used - in this card I am using both- the positive and the negative] - thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.
