CASology Challenge #366: ZODIAC

I don't have any specific zodiac, astrology or astronomy images in my collection so started off thinking I would play with either stars or animals this week. I have plenty of crab, lion and fish images to work with to create a birthday card for a Cancer, Leo or Pisces friend. Looking at the Chinese zodiac opens up even more options. Along with birthday cards, I thought it would be fun to look at romantic pairings which lead me into the four elements of the zodiac.

I'm not sure earth and water are considered an ideal match in astrology, but Stefan and I will be celebrating 25 years next month so I created an anniversary card for us.

The earth symbol is created with a small triangle die cut and a snipped piece of a Poppystamps Frieda Leaf die cut and paired with an MFT Color Drop die cut and pair of circles for the water symbol. Once again, my MFT Essential Sentiments stamp set is used. 

The design team has great inspiration for you this week!
