Black & White Anniversary

Good morning all!
I have a card to share with you today!
It's an Anniversary card that I made using the Tonic Studios Dies
which I purchased recently. I have to say I made a mistake & this wasn't 
actually what I thought I had bought but hey ho,
 a happy accident it would appear!

I used white linen embossed card stock for the base & the die cuts.
A matt of silver mirror card, then a matt of black embossed card
from the Pure Elegance Kit by Lelli-Bot Crafts whichI won as a blog candy.

I created the sentiment in my graphics programme as I just couldn't find 
what I was after anywhere. I've added it here for you if you'd like it!

All I ask is please don't share. If you want to tell your friends about it that's great, 
they are more than welcome to pop over to pick it up too.
If you do use it, I'd appreciate if you added a link back to my blog!
To save the image to your pc, just click on the image to enlarge it then 
right click &save.
The sentiment was cut out using a Marianne Creatable die.

I added a few little gems from my stash just to finish it off!
Thanks for popping by, I hope you like it!
I'm off to deliver this card now!
