I want Peace (and chocolate) for Timeless Twine

Hurray!  It's Monday!  And I get to be the first Twine-ista of 2015 to post on the Timeless Twine blog.  Since it's so early in the new year, I thought I'd share my new year's resolution with all of you.
This year, in an attempt to actually keep it for a change, I've resolved to eat MORE chocolate.  Yes.  I think I can keep this one.
This sentiment, from Unity Stamp Company, was the perfect fit for my resolution. Of course, Timeless Twine and Bella Creationz products tie the whole card together.  You'll see!

I cut the tag out on my Cricut Expression 2, using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge on Close To My Heart Kraft card stock. Then, I stamped the Chocolate Bar sentiment. I used American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 papers on this card.
The baker's twine is Cherry Red. The sequins are Clearly Beautiful Loose Mixed Sequins.

There will be a whole year of great inspiration from this year's Creative Crew so make sure to visit each day!
I'm off to eat more chocolate!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
