My item is a standard sized card.  Since I am featuring Seaside papers this month, I thought my card should be "aquatic". 
 
 
 And here's a closer, detailed view.  Isn't that little guy just adorable? 
 
 
This view captures the inside of the card (no greeting yet because I'm not sure what I will do with this (you just have to finish it off).  The layer on the inside matches the middle layer of the card.

Stamps Cuddly Saluations - images below
Inks:  Black Exclusive Inks; B68 Turquoise Blue ShinHan Touch Twin Markers

And here's a special treat today.  When I create artwork, sometimes it takes me days, literally, days!  Well, I actually created 2 cards this week!  Here is the second which is a 7" x 5" card also using Seaside:


Another view showing that the inside also has some pizazz:
