Pack Up Your Troubles

I've had this song in my head ever since the Daring Cardmakers announced this week's challenge would have a suitcase theme.  I quite like the song, the Dinky Diva did a really cute dance to it in a show last Christmas so in turn it makes me think of that too.  Perhaps the only way to get it out of my head was to make a card.
I've dragged out some very old papers for this and done lots of tearing to make a distressed, collaged, scene with Tilda about to go off on her travels.  The stamped images have been coloured with Copics.
Having got the tearing bug, I've made torn flowers and leaves to decorate the front along with some doodling and pale pink Papermania crystals.  Here's a pic of the inside.
