Cherry Coaster Idea

This was posted to the MB at Studio Calico, but I wanted to make sure to have a "permanent" home for it. I used the Carousel add-on combined with the main kit from March, FLY A KITE to create this LO.
At first, the coaster looked like this.....

I thought it would make a cool frame for a photograph and really accent a "rare" (so-t0-speak) vintage item. Using a pencil, I sketched where I wanted to make my incisions :), then cut using an exacto knife on a self healing mat.
