Bon voyage to a favourite teacher

My son has asked for a card for one of his business teachers , who is a favourite of his, as she is leaving at the end of term to go live in Canada where her husband originates from. He asked for a large card and intends taking it for all the class to sign, sound alot but I think theres only 6 or 8 of them in total, A level classes are much better sizes than O'level or whatever they call them these days.

He chose the image and asked for it to be done in Canadian flag colours, not sure if he knew what they were but he soon will. The image he chose was 'fly away' a Sassy stamp from Sugar Nellie, I think she may well be one of my favourites. I coloured her with Promarkers and added hihlights such as her eyes , sparkle on her skirt and buttons with sakura glaze pens.

The papers are stamped with a fab stamp from Rainbow craft studios and its called twirly daisy background. You can see it used more by the DT at Creative craft challenges along with another of their background stamps too. If you like whimsy twee and twirly pop along to their site , you'll love it.

Th ribbon is from my stash and I'm really proud of my cute hand tied bows which I attached with diamond glaze. The flowers are daisy punched from copy paper and the smaller coloured with the same promarker as the girls dress and the flat back pearls are from hobby craft.

The sentiment I had to hand write as my son wanted something I don't have in rubber and he asked me to leave the computer before I could print out a sentiment, I'm on a different computer without a printer, I really will have to get this one linked up (I really mean will have to ask hubby to). I took 3 different pics of the card as I'm not sure about adding a bow to the sentiment and if so what position so please let me know what you think as I do value all your opinions.

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