Birthday Card Using Ching Chou Kuik Spring Flower with Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Paper Pack

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  We were on vacation; but I am home now and happy to be back.  It was very hot in MO; but nice and cool when we got home to Southern CA.  It is normally cooler there; but this visit was hot and humid.  We went to see one of my granddaughter's high school graduation.  

I have a new image - Ching Chou Kuik "Spring Flower" that I used for this card.  I love this sweet image and hope you enjoy it.  It is a birthday card; but not sure who it belongs to at this time.  I had fairie dust on it; but it is hard to see and I think most of it fell off.  LOL!
