For this card I chose the sea horse image and made a simple card using a piece of designer paper I'd been hoarding for a long time. I stamped the seahorse directly onto the paper and colored it in with prismacolor pencils to match the paper tones, so this came together pretty quickly. Dressed it up with some ribbon and a fabulously cute charm. Mark's Finest Papers has a great selection of charms to go along with so many projects, I always have fun with charms!
