Card for my daughter's birthday - just before she goes off travelling!!

Hi everyone - still not got any time to make cards (or find stuff even if I did have time!)  Our move went really well and we feel very happy and content in our new home here in The Lake District.  It was our Emily's 20th birthday last Saturday, just before she set off on her latest travelling expedition and this is the card I quickly made before my desk was packed!  The image is by Stamping Bella- love it because it's very Hepburn-esque, and rather suitable for a traveller!!  My loveliest friend, Lesley (from Grenouille Greetings) gave me the die-set (amongst loads of other crafting delights) for Christmas and it was so easy to use.  The papers are by Marianne Designs from their latest 2015 release - Pretty Paper Blocs - Old Press(PK9120) and Baroque(PK9119).  The flourish is also by Marianne Designs - Tiny's Flower 2 (LR0249) and currently in stock here at Maddylisa Crafts.
The rolled flowers are by Kort and Godt and the pearls etc from my stash!
Emily got off from her travels ok and we even managed to skype her during her stopover at Singapore airport- technology eh!
Just looked out the window and it's snowing here and already settling -eek!!  Stay warm everyone!
