It's Friday so that means it's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge.  However, today, we are very excited to add a little something more!  The Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Team is bringing you a fun Blog Hop to show you our September Digi release!!  If you arrived here from Patricia's blog, you're in the right place.  If not, you probably will want to start back at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog so that you don't miss a thing!

While you're hopping, be sure to leave some love on each of the blog hop posts…One of the ladies below is a mystery blogger and she will be picking a random winner from the comments on her blog post!! The winning prize will be the whole September Digi Release!! (The winner will be announced on the SNS Digi Challenge blog on Friday, September 28th.)
 I got to play with the new 4 Petaled Flower Digi SetI think this set was just made for paper piecing and that's exactly what I did!  :)

This week's challenge is to use scoring on your project.  I have scoring to make the shape of my card and I also scored each petal of my flowers to give the flower more dimension.  Each petal has 3 scores and then I folded them mountain & valley style.  You can see the scoring best in this picture.  My bling really doesn't have pink in's the lighting.  Sorry!

I recently saw this card design on SCS in their Try a New Technique challenge for 9/10/12 (TLC394). It's called a "twisted card." I thought it looked so unusual and of course, as always, I really like new card folds.  I had to give it a try.

I adhered the front pocket closed and put a removable panel in the inside pocket for a message to the recipient.

Here's a close-up of the left interior panel.

Cardstock:  Recollections, Paper Company

Patterned Paper:  Echo Park (Times & Seasons)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (4 Petaled Flowers, True Friend Digi Sentiments, A True Friend)
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tea Dye)
Embellishments/Tools:  Bling flourish (Prima Say It In Crystals), rhinestones (Studio G), brad (Oriental Trading), Spellbinders (Petite Oval Small, Petite Scalloped Oval Large), ribbon (Offray), Copic Marker (Black 100)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - shaped card
Cute Card Thursday #235 - shaped card
Word Art Wednesday #46 - encouraging sentiment
Diva's By Design #53 - Lovely Layers (at least 4 layers)
52 Card Pick-Up #38 - make a card
Catered Crop - Knot Now (tie a knot)

Now, here is the blog hop list to see September Digi Release-Scoring Challenge creations.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for your chance to receive the entire digi release!

I hope you'll play along with us this week.   Just a few things to keep in mind as you play....

~Please remember to use digital images ONLY for the challenge.
~You don't have to use SNS digi images to play along but we sure do love when you do!
~When uploading to online galleries, please use keyword SNSDC72.

Every card you enter into our challenges throughout September, you will get one entry to be eligible for winning 3 digis of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store.

Because we strongly think those of you who love to use our digital images should be recognized a little more, every week we spotlight one participant who uses SNSS digi images for their card or project.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Wendy Jordan's blog.
