For my card I got to work with this gorgeous image from Sami Stamps called My First Day which can be found here. I was also lucky enough to get to work with papers by Michele R Designs and the papers I used are from a pack called Shabby Vintage Rose.
My first thought when I saw the image was to make a back to school card but then I had the idea that the image could also be used as a card for someone who may be leaving or going travelling so I went with this design:

view of inside using Michele R insert:

I coloured the image with Promarkers and backed the papers and image with some Kraft card. I printed out a little ticket and an envelope from the elements pack and also used the banner too for the top of the card. The wording was cut using an Xcut die and I added an arrow and some little green pearls to finish.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
