CFC 59 and Dynamic Duos

Hello there.

Hope you had a fabulous 4th of July. We had a VERY low-key one - with the dry weather and burn/firework bans in our area. The kids were grossly disappointed, as was I.

I am sneaking in a late post for the Casual Friday Round and Round challenge this morning! I made it yesterday, but didn't get to my computer last night. Squee! The challenge is to use TWO circles in your "Clean and Simple" project.

For Dynamic Duos, I chose to use Cocoa (or dark brown) as my color of choice.

Here is my card, using the "masking" technique to make the "hole" in the tree for my owl. I circle punched a 2-in circle in a post-it note (stolen off of Avery's craft desk and she BUSTED me, for the love of Pete! She's 8 - she should be a detective; she finds everything.) and I stuck it to my card base before stamping the wood grain in Desert Sand using the Skipping Stones Design Grunge 2 stamp set.

The sentiment is stamped in the same cocoa ink from the Grunge 2 set. My owl and tiny brown flowers are CTMH. The little pearl gems are Michaels; brown twine is from PaperTrey Ink.

Thanks for looking!
