For a girl going overseas

Hi all more cards for my son , I think I've got them all made and now I will try and post them all, not decided yet whether to do one mamouth post or lots of small ones. Knowing how I can get in a muddle at the best of time maybe smaller ones would be a safer bet so the next few won't hopefully have as much waffle as this one has .

This card is for another of my son's friends leaving 6th upper this year and also has a scholarship to the States though can't remeber what the scholarship is in or where abouts in the States either. Have to say I think these young people have some spunk, I thought I was brave going to nursing school and anyone who goes to university is doing well but in another country  is well spunky if you ask me, oh to be young and fearless once more?

My son really liked this LOTV image and wanted to give his friends lots of luck for travelling abroad etc so I got to use this cutie again, I think it is going to be one well used image.

I wanted to make it look girly this time so went for some flowery papers and matched with another paper from the same set both from my scraps and so not 100% sure they are papermania.
I added more flowers and wanted some bling so added bronze mirricard and bronze 1/2 pearls for flower centres too. The LOTV sentiment is so perfect for this card , well for anyone off in search of their dreams so that was the finishing touch.
The image I coloured the cats in Promarkers and the horseshoe in a mix of Sakura glaze pens and Promarker and I love how it turned out.
