CAS-ual Fridays 59...TWO Circles



Wow...the pink in the CAS-ual Friday gallery last week was so pretty!!  I love pink...and it seems so do a lot of other card makers:)!!  Congrats to all the winners...well done:)!!  This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a clean and simple card using TWO (2) circles...

This week's sponsor is The Twinery ...

thetwinery.com
They have generously given each of the Girl Fridays some baker's twine to use on our cards, AND are giving the winner of this challenge the  I Dream In Twine pack valued at $32
WOW...how cool is that?!!  Hope you enter a card for a chance to win this wonderful assortment...now  to show you what I made...
     I've edited this post to a much shorter explanation...my two circles that make up the black frame are my  circles for this challenge...the flower centers are technically disks and I didn't include any sentiment in my counting...yeah...done:)!!
       I used my Grid Lines stamp from Hero Arts and stamped with versamark on black paper, white embossed and used two spellbinder circle dies to cut out a thick circle  and then with two different circle dies, cut another thicker circle that is just black.  I used my Glossy Accents and coated the stamped circle twice(after letting it  dry in between coats).
  I put that circle on the other black circle and made a frame which I used to show some felt (Papertrey Ink) punched flowers(EK Success) and a sentiment from Paper Smooches.  I used Modern Lines background stamp from Hero Arts and stamped on bazzill white with versamark and clear embossed.   Rounded bottom corners, used die to cut out circle to put flower panel beneath it and popped up the panel and added black baker's twine to finish the card.  The stems were made using a die from Cuttlebug, 2 x 2 Asterisks set.
Hope you will join in the challenge this week...don't forget to check out the CAS-ual Friday site for inspiration from the Design Team AND on Facebook, where you'll find daily inspiration ...and me:)!!
