Good luck at high school!

I cannot believe my lovely niece is starting high school later this week!

(making me feel o-o-o-o-old!)
Anyway, I thought the theme over at Patties Creations 
was perfect to make a card for her...
So I thought outside-the-box a bit, and chose "ladybug family"...

I hand-drew / wrote everything on this card, except the ladybug family!
I drew the "paper" directly onto the card, and separately made - drew and cut out -
 the ruler, calculator, pencils and eraser.
Some of the items, I raised on 3d foam before putting on the card.
The ladybug family were coloured with my promarkers 
and I put glossy accents on their shells.
