Black and White

Good morning!  I have another entry for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.  I'm finding it's VERY difficult for me to use JUST these 2 colors without adding another.  My sentiment is the famous "to every thing there is a season" scripture, from  Ecclesiastes 3.


supplies: black and white cardstock, white velllum, Hero Arts S5324 Simple Frame, CG291 Three Dotted Flowers, Our Daily Bread "Randi's Song" (Eccl.3:1 - 8), Verve #VS-0144 Bloom & Grow (leaves), versamark and white embossing powder, versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder


Also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes challenge.
