I made this card for the ongoing ATC swap for February. It's based loosely on Erin Morgenstern's "The Night Circus" and includes an excerpt from her blog project "Flax Golden Tales"

In the background you can see the open card where the excerpt is.
"The Storied Pasts of Carousel Ponies
Once they were real ponies, because thats how such stories go.
(Before that they were real boys, of course. Princes and paupers and a solitary thief, each with their own individual pre-pony story.)
It was a curse of some sort, though none of them would tell the same tale now were they able to speak of it. They were frozen mid-gallop and later, much later, there was music and lights and the delighted laughs and squeals of children.
It wasnt so bad, as curses go.
Quite a few of them found it rather fun, unless the children kicked too hard. And even the grumpiest pony agreed that the feel of wind as they spun was decadent and wild, reminiscent of the real-pony days.
But the spinning and the lights and the music all ceased long ago, replaced by stillness and slowly fading paint.
Sometimes they hum tunes from various past lives softly to themselves as they wait for their next story."
