Birthday star...

Hiya folks!

I'm continuing on with my personal challenge to create birthday cards for each of the Stamping Bella Zodiac Girls today. Miss Virgo is the latest star sign sweetie to get inked up and show off all her earthy loveliness. Virgo is the sign of the Virgin and she is reserved, modest, practical and industrious. She's analytical and seeks to know and understand. Her signature colors are navy blue and gray, the classic colors of refinement and taste. I kinda struggled with this one a bit, only because her grey dress was looking way too much like a wedding dress. That's when I grabbed my trusty B37 Copic and added the blue trim until I was much happier with her look. The flowers in her hair then inspired me to color in an entire field of flowers for her to be standing in. Once again, the sentiment is a mix of stamps with the top being from the Papertrey Ink Stargazer sets and the description is included with Virgo herself. 
Tomorrow I will have the altered version of Virgo and I'm quite excited to share her so you won't want to miss that!  ;)
