Lia Stampz - Challenge #56 - Monochrome

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to my last post of 2013! Can you believe another year will begin in just a couple of hours? What a year it has been!  Before I get into my post I want to wish each of you a Very Happy New Year full of Blessings! :o)

It's also time for a new challenge to begin over at Lia Stampz. This time the theme is "monochrome" and you have until January 15th to link up a project. I made my card using a fun image that is very appropriately called "Happy New Year." It can be found at Whimsy Stamps right HERE. My colour inspiration was the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 - Radiant Orchid. I've included the photo farther down in the post.

Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Lia Stampz - Happy New Year,
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Dies: Just Rite Custom Dies;
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels Fourteen;
Punches: WRMK Mini 8 Punch - Doily;
