Yes, Virginia... Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Virgina Lu is celebrating her 50th birthday on 9th of December and she is holding a virtual birthday party here at Yes, Virginia. Everyone is invited to join the birthday fun!

I've only knew Virginia for a few months. Her blog is very inspiring with lots of wonderful cards and her family stories always make me smile. So here it is, Virginia, my card for you. Hope you like it.

The main stamped image is from Precious Moment. For some reason I don't think Precious Moment stamps are available in the UK. (If anyone knows where I can buy them in the UK, please let me know. I just adore them!!) This stamp, given by a good friend of mine, came all the way from Taiwan. I guess it has a special meaning to use it on a card for Virginia - a blog friend also from Taiwan! Here is a close up photo of the main image.

This image was coloured by Copic marker and water colour pencils. I have added glitters on the flowers and bow on the hair, but I don't think it shows up on the photo. I have also made a small charm and added the Chinese word "珍惜" meaning cherish on the bottom right.

For this card, I have followed the sketch from Quixotic Paperie Sketch Challenge - No. 2  but rotated it 180 degrees.
Happy 50th Birthday, Virginia!! 
May all your wishes come true & have a great day!
