CYCI# 65 Workin' Hard CAS

 Welcome back to another Clean and Quick - 10 minutes or less Challenge.

This time we have the added challenge of limiting our card to 2 layers. Here's what I came up with....

Ok, so I know it doesn't look that simple, and it isn't entirely clean, (and I have a took a lot longer than 10 minutes to make) but I was sure to adhere to the 2 layer limit!! Lol. I guess I focused on that part of the challenge and figured that it would stay simple. Plus, I had a great idea for the card and really wanted to make it work :-)   Oh well... looking back on it, it really was a simple design. I used the Wood You Be Mine and Adventure Awaits stamp sets. I random stamped the wood slice in Early Espresso on Chocolate Chip CS then embossed the Adventure Awaits typography in the middle. I stamped the axe, colored it with Early Espresso and Silver, and fussy cut it (probabaly the hardest part of the card, but still fairly easy). After that I used the axe to chop out the center of a piece of Adventure Bound DSP. Added the sentiment from @SoSocial, mounted it all, and Poof!!  See, it took way less than 10 minutes to read about it, so there!  LMBO! 

Well thanks again for joining me for another fun please go visit to see what other creations await. I'd also like to know if any of my readers are participating in the challenge, so please drop me a note below! 

See you all next week; ta-ta for now :-)
