A romantic, swashbuckling card depicting a Knight on horseback fighting a Dragon to defend a Castle. This is a card for bravery, adventures, a birthday, a fantasy, for love.
You’re my knight in shining armor.
You are the boldest, bravest, most noble knight in the Holy Empire.
If you can’t take the heat, don’t tickle the dragon.
“My task is set before me, girl
My mission clear and true
There’ll be black knights and dragons, girl
But I will always come for you.” ~Emme Rollins
Sometimes your knight in shining armor turns out to be a country boy in dirty work boots.
My knight is stuck in traffic.
An Englishman’s home is his castle.
It’s always impossible until it’s done.
Only a fool trips on what’s behind him.
Not my circus, not my dragon.
Rocks in my path? I keep them all. With them I shall build my castle. ~Nemo Nox
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. ~Albert Einstein
Sometimes you just have to write your own damn fairy tale.
I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then. ~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
I live in a world of fantasy, so keep your reality away from me.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. ~C.S. Lewis
I’ve been looking for you since I heard my first fairy tale.
May you live every day of your life. ~Jonathan Swift
The most beautiful things in the world must be felt with the heart. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Sometimes the best teacup is chipped.
Some day you’ll have your own fairy tale.
You are my happily ever after.
Make a wish.
