Carolina Girl (Cely)
I was commissioned to do a birthday card, but the request had me "scratching my head".  The theme had to include birthday, a ballerina, and a specific beach scene sent to me of the little birthday girl.  Putting that all on one card seemed impossible since I couldn't get them to relate and only had two days to complete card.  Teepee card popped into my head.  The card folds flat and fits into a 5x7 envelop.  These pictures are not the greatest, but I am in a hurry to get the card to the purchaser this morning.  I decorated the envelop with her name with sea creatures and balloons streaming down.

I didn't want to add to much to this side since so many other sides were already a little busy

Her beautiful name. I lightly taped the name so she could play with the letters or remove them to put somewhere else
