Bon Voyage

Good evening all. It's been another nice day here, long may it last. 
One of my nephews flies to China tomorrow for a year on a university exchange to learn Mandarin. This is the digital version of the card I made him....I did print it but forgot to take a photo of the finished article!

Card front

and the insert

Made in My Memories Suite using a kit called Ticket to Ride, it's much the same as the one I made Gary before his trip to Mongolia in the summer but with a Chinese slant! The Mandarin text was translated on line and reads China on the tag and Bon Voyage on the postcard. The insert reads "have fun and stay safe" I think!

Challenges entered:
Pile it On - vintage or shabby chic
