Finland Cover with Europa 2016 Think Green and odd-shaped stamp

A magnificent cover to display today is the one sent from Finland. It features a beautiful Europa 2016 Think Green stamp (One of my favourite sets in Europa themes) and an odd-shaped stamp too.
The "Ecology in Europe - Think Green" was adopted as the common design theme for Europa stamps in 2016 and 61 postal administrations joined the joint issue program. It was also the 60th anniversary of the Europa stamps in 2016, as these stamps started in 1956.
Finland issued a single stamp on the event on 6th May 2016 that featured the common design. It's a 1st Class Value stamp.
The 2nd stamp used on the cover was an odd-shaped stamp with a value of 0.10 Euro. The self-adhesive stamp was issued under the series "Water and Archipelago" on 24th January 2008. It is one of the stamp from a set of 3 stamps.

Indeed a cover to cherish!
