Truly Scrumptious Challenge #2

I've used the sketch for the second Truly Scrumptious challenge to make a card for my flat-mate to give to a friend, who's jetting off for six months travelling next weekend. She really had me stumped when she asked me to make a card for this, as I thought I hadn't got any suitable images or travel themed papers...but then I remembered this Paddington bear image I received in a swap ages ago (can't remember who from...sorry) - I think it's a stamp that was a freebie with a magazine some time last year. The papers are from the 'Christmas' stack by DCWV, the ribbon is from Hobbycraft, I used the 'Spots & Dots' folder to emboss the white circle, and the sentiment (I know it's much larger than the sketch! lol) was cut using the 'Olivia' alphabet. I did make a button (tied on with the ribbon)...although I'm not very happy with it, and will probably remove it...I had several attempts, but just couldn't manage to doodle the white detail, without going wonky!
