AiFactory Flourishes for Easter

Good morning everyone! This week is kind of a nutsy week. The DT was given our regular challenge and then Angie upped the ante by offering a prize to the DT member who was able to enter her project in the most challenges. You guys know how much I like multi-challenge cards, so I was definitely game for this one. I don't know if I've succeeded, but I certainly gave it my best shot.

For AiFactory Challenge 30, we got to use some brand new clip-art flourishes. I chose to take one of them, duplicate it, and colour it green before printing it onto card stock. I already had two challenges in mind as a place to start. The first is Mojo Monday 132. I went with the square version of the sketch. The second is my all-time favourite challenge, Etsy Inspired. Challenge #81 comes from the shop Ponder & Stitch. This time I chose this bracelet, with it's yellow, purple and green. I even used the button!

I'll list the rest of the challenges after the card, but I figure if I talk too much first, you guys are going to get bored. So, here's the card!
Deets: Flourish - AiFactory & Photoshop
Stamp: Memory Box
Ink: Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Yoyo yellow & Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Etc: Clear embossing powder, Nestibilities Labels 3, SU Soft Suede ribbon
All else is from the Caffinated Cropper Beeez Knees kit (dp, button, thread and doily)

Please check out the rest of the AiFactory DT and their projects. If you play along you could win your own set of flourishes. I only used one, but there are four different flourishes in the set. Links are on the left sidebar.

Other challenges this card is for:
Oh, Alice! Chapter 6 - the fine print: the 3rd dp is printed, although it doesn't show as much as I would have wished.
