Happy Birthday for a friend...

 Next week is the birthday of a friend of mine whom I have known since grade 1 (that's a looonnnggg time ago). I knew I wanted to use the cute Lawn Fawn stamps, but I had trouble coming up with an idea until I read about the CAS-ual Friday challenge - CFC35: Create a Clean And Simple project with scallops. I used scallops for the water, but I used the 'waste' portion of the scallops. I spent a lot of time cutting out the sea critters, but it was well worth it. I love the look of the paper pieced critters.





My friend has actually spent some time working with dolphins, so I thought this cute dolphin might make her smile. I also made and decorated the envelope. Now I just have to mail it and hope it gets across the country in time!


Challenges that I am entering this in:
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 35 - scallops
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Moxie Fab World - Die Cutting Challenge (make sure you stop by and play!)
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Happy Birthday (it's their 3rd birthday and my first time playing)
 
 
Have a great day!
