wait how I didn't comment on this earlier...
It's absolutely beautiful. I love how picked a less usual pose for the dolphin, and the background is lovely! Simple enough the make the animal really stand out but still 'complete' :)

I really want to put more effort into the backgrounds of my cards which I did with this one and it makes a lot of difference.
