Chinese Birthday

My son's wife is Chinese and will be celebrating her birthday soon. I always try to do something a bit traditional for her, because I know she misses her home and I want to let her know that I respect her customs. I won't try to explain what happened to my graphics program when I tried to import Mandarin characters to print on her card, just to say that it took two days to recover from the disaster!!! Who knew PSP crashed on Kanji?

Anyhow, I worked it out and finished the card. Here it is.  The crane is a symbol of fortune and longevity.
