Make It Monday 2014 A la Carte

I made this card for the PTI Make It Monday 2014 A la Carte challenge -  to choose any of the past years' challenges.  I was inspired by Laura Bassen's Camouflaging Die Cuts challenge.
I love the abrupt line of color, the layered word die cuts and great contrast with the black sentiment strip.  I made mine a wedding card - using the PTI Together die and stamps from the Love and Marriage set.

I really cannot believe that the year is over and we are about to enter 2015!  The older I get, the shorter the years seem to be!
Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year!   I'd like to thank each and every one of you that visit my blog and leave me lovely notes and I look forward to our continuing 'stamping' friendship in the coming year!

Stamps:  Love and Marriage - PTI
Paper:  White, True Black - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress Mustard Seed and Wild Honey, Archival Jet Black, Versamark.
Accessories:  Together Die - Wonderful Words - PTI, Winter Blend Sequins - Avery Elle, Word Window Punch- SU, Eclipse tape (for masking), Glossy Accents, foam dots, white embossing powder.
