Divination assignment - minor arcana

Note that there will probably be at least one more lesson for this term, as soon as I decide what it is. Haha. ^^

Minor arcana are the four suits in tarot - usually pentacles/coins, cups, swords, and wands, though these vary from deck to deck. I have a Feng Shui deck that uses the Chinese directional animals - the black turtle, the green dragon, the white tiger, and the red phoenix.

Each suit has fourteen cards - ace through ten, a page, a knight, a queen, and a king (though these sometimes vary as well - for example the page and knight might be replaced by the princess and the prince.)

Your assignment (should you choose to accept it) is to design your own Harry Potter tarot card. You should use an image from the books, movies, or even fanart (but be sure to get the artist's permission!)

Here are some specifications:
-No particular size limits, though it should be vaguely card shaped
-The image you use should somehow relate to the card you pick out. I once again suggest using to help you out. You should also include a sentence or two (or however many it takes) on why you believe your image fits the card.
-You must include some indication of the suit and number in the image. If you want, you could just use a text box with, for example, "five of swords". However, I would prefer that if you were doing the five of swords, that you integrate five swords into the image. Or you could integrate one sword and then add the number in text. Regardless, make sure it is clear what card you've created.

EDIT: Due date October 31
