The incomparable ginger

The incomparable dancer and actress Ginger Rogers was born Virginia Katherine McMath on 16 July 1911 in Independence Missouri. Ginger Rogers is one of the most recognisable names in show business and the subject of many quotable quotes such as the memorable 1985 line …. “sure Fred Astaire was great but don’t forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did – backwards and in high heels”. In the mid 1940’s she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood, collecting a numerous awards and sparkling accolades including an Academy Award for best actress for her performance in Kitty Foyle. So to create sparkling birthday wishes to Ginger we copied a black and white stylised image onto quartz paper and teamed it with gorgeous crystal beading. Not all images lend themselves to gift wrap so you do have to invest the time (and it always takes longer than you anticipate) searching for the ones that work with the theme and shape of your gift.
