Janette gave us a sketch today that was a real challenge for me. I kept thinking how to make the four circles a cohesive whole so they just weren't four circles showing little vignettes. I decided to make Valentine and use the word "LOVE" since it has four letters. Instead of gluing on the circles, I stamped a dotted heart and put my letters inside that. I think of it as a CAS card.
Oh, another thing......I'm cheap when it comes to postage! So the card is a 4.25" x 4.25" rather than the 5" square we were given.......hence, a smaller red frame.....the inside panel, #2, is the size given.

Sallie this is wonderful. I just the love the look of your letters surrounded by the dotted frame. It's so striking. Funny thing about the postage..........when DH saw my card for this challenge, he said how are you going to mail that?! Told him I wouldn't be, that as a wedding card it would most likely be hand delivered!!!!!! Learned my lesson from my Christmas cards this past year ):
