AiFactory Challenge 30 - ANYTHING GOES!

Morning everyone, it's time for the next challenge at AiFactory and this week's theme is Anything Goes! So let's see all your creations as you can enter any kind of project you like.
Mia challenged the Design Team to make something with this beautiful set of Clip Art with a flourish theme.  The lucky winner will receive this as the prize.
I'm also pleased to say that we're back with the old challenge blog this week as a lot of people found the new one a bit confusing. So if you click on the link above, you'll be transported to a much more familiar place!
Here's what I made with some of the images. I used a sketch by Doodle Palace for the card.

I printed a flourish in the top right hand corner of some polka dot paper for the background.
I manipulated and resized the border image to make the border strips and the frame. I printed these out on white parchment paper and coloured them with VersaColor inks in lilac, mint and sky blue.
The lovely image I used is actually holding a heart but I got a bit creative and turned the heart into a box of chocs with a black Sharpie fine pen. I printed out another image and coloured her with Promarkers, cut her out and added just the chocolate box and arms cut out from the first image to give a 3D effect.
I put the image on a square mat embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I then cut some Easter egg shapes from some of my experimental paper scraps which I printed out when working out which papers to use for my card. I coloured these with inks and embossed them using Crystal embossing powder.
I assembled the card as shown, adding a computer generated sentiment cut to an oval shape and Prima pastel flowers with pearl centres.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - Scrap It! using paper scraps for  embellishments (my Easter eggs)
Papertake Weekly - Open Theme
