A Magical Carriage Ride - CAS

This image is straight out of a fairy tale! I am sure it would make the day "above and beyond" if traveling in a carriage at what appears to be a rapid pace. Keeping it very CAS, the image and sentiment were stamped directly onto the card base. A couple of dies were used to "ground" the image.
