Happy Saturday Everyone!
It's one of those "Just Because" cards and this one sure is a sweet one!
When I started scrapbooking almost 12 years ago there weren't very many products to be found and so it really was a technique driven hobby.
I met a scrapping buddy and through her I learnt how to paper piece. Soon I was cutting smaller and smaller pieces, glueing them and then pen stitching all around them. There was barely a page that didn't have a hand created character on it.
Then things changed, products were available everywhere, premade pages, 3D accents, all the things I'd spent hours making before were available to just "peel and stick". The art of the tiny scissors went the way of the wind.
Then I started cardmaking about a year and a half ago and I realized that the stampers were quietly keeping this technique going like a little secret society:)
It was a revelation to me and a joy!
Now I try and do a little cutting at least once a week and this is one of those weeks :)
It helped that one of my favorite blogs had this as a challenge this week amongst the others on this card:

Creative Cottage want Pretty Pink

Jacksonbelle had a 123 recipe of 1 Black item, 2 Punched items and 3 Circles
