Card for Ellie

I made this card for my daughter, who is doing something very exciting at the moment and living away from home for the first time.  We are awaiting exam results in August so I'm getting ready -  and, no matter the outcome I am very proud of all she has achieved over the last two years.  As she is 18, this card also meets the criteria forSt Luke's Charity Cards Challenge, where they are asking for cards for teenagers.
I chose some of her favourite things (see the little shoe?) , and,yes, that is a real i-tunes card.  I popped it up on dimensionals after mounting it on some foil paper cut out into a big note shape using my Big Shot and matching lime green cardstock. The ribbon and bow are made from some beautiful SU organdy ribbon in Lucky Limeade and I stamped a little 'Well Done', which is a bit understated, but she doesn't like a fuss!
August 6th - just found out this card was a runner up in the challenge, I'm chuffed to bits!
