Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Longing For PC" image

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well.  It has been a crazy busy year for everyone I speak to.  Plus, allergies are worse than ever for all of us.  Let's hope things improve and that we have more time to create in the coming months.

I colored this image last month; but just finished creating the card for it yesterday.  I loved this image as soon as I saw it.  It is Ching-Chou Kuik "Longing For PC"; which is a fairly new image.  I used her partially colored image; which was the skin.  Isn't she gorgeous?

It was a very hard card to photograph.  None of the pictures do it justice for sure.  I didn't add a sentiment to the front; because it seemed to take away from the elegance of it.
