I think I need a Drumroll...

Wow!  I cannot believe it!  This is my 100th post!  Last January, one blog post used to take me around 2 hours; I was so "blog illiterate", if there is such a thing, it was not even funny.  Fast forward, and I have thoroughly enjoyed learning the blogging world-especially when it comes to cards!
Thank you all for your visits and your sweet comments.  I hope to continue to find new challenges, "join" new blogs and meet new people via the internet.  And, I am really hoping to become a part of a challenge team/designer. 
Alright, on to the next project.  I have been waiting for the right color challenge or sketch challenge to try out something new- I came up with a way to make some pretty nifty bittersweet.

Simply Bittersweet

What do you think?  I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the Little Leaves Sizzlit from Stampin' Up, as well as a standard hole puncher.  As you can see, I cut the leaves off of the die cut to create a vine.  The sketch is courtesy of Less is More .  

The Early Espresso panel is scored, creating 3 rectangles within the panel to follow the sketch. 
To make the bittersweet, both the punched piece from the Punch Pack and the small circle were burnished with the scoring tool, causing the paper to curl.  A tiny bit of dimensional adhesive was placed at the center of the punched paper, and the cupped circle was then placed over that adhesive.  All supplies are Stampin' Up.
I hope you like my project and thanks so much for stopping by!  

Have a blessed week!
