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!
