Virginia's milestone

My sweet friend Virginia is turning 50 on December 9th, and has invited us to a virtual birthday party, an event I wouldn't miss for the world!
Virginia and I joined the Hero Arts Flickr group around the same time, we won our first HA challenge prize the same week, and have been following each other's lives ever since. We planned to meet when she visited London with her family (but that didn't work out), but when she visit Scandinavia this summer we WILL meet !
This card is Virginia's first in paper print, and is as happy and cheerful as Virginia herself! I think this really captures her style AND personality!
For my birthdaycard I've used the Hero Arts Dandelion stamp (G4917), a stamp that we both used a lot around the time we got to know each other, and a stamp we challenged each other to use in as many different ways as possible! Remember, Virginia??
The panel was covered with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass (DTP), and sponged with some DI Chipped Sapphireat the top. The Hero Arts Silhouette Grass (S5316) was stamped using Versamark Ink, and misted with Perfect Pearls Mist. My first order from Ellen Hutson came yesterday, and so finally I have in my possesion the Butterfly Delights-die from Memory Box - isn't it sweet??
Happy birthday sweet friend!

Hugs, Anette :o)

Just noticed I add an extra N in your name (LOL)!! That is because you stamp like NOBODY's business! I just love your style and everything you do! Again, I am in awe of your talent!

I love your post for Virginia, Anette and your card is so beautiful! Love the technique you used with the silhouette grass, and your row of cut-out butterflies is so sweet! :)
