I love seahorses so decided to make the two in the set the focus of my card. They looked like a young couple in love when I layered them together so I decided to go with that as my theme - this could work as an engagement card or an anniversary card. I "fancy cut" the DP along the top so my sentiment is hidden there. I just keep giggling when I think how those bubbles must be tickling her nose - LOL.

Digi stamps - Cute Seahorse and Chubby Seahorse
Lasercut Chipboard - Round Leaves
