Quirky is blooming all over

Kemly set us the challenge to use the photo inspiration below for colours, add lots of flowers or both colours and lots of flowers. It is a very delicate photo with pinks, blues, white and green, and gold, and I incorporated some of those into my card. Our sponsor this time is Crackerbox Palace and the fishing image - fishing boy (could be a girl also I think), flowers and chicks are all from their web site. 
Winners of the challenge can choose any of the stamps to be supplied in digi format.

I coloured the fishing image with Promarkers, and printed the frame of flowers and chicks onto kraft card and coloured those with Koh-I-Noor Progresso woodless pencils then cut an aperture and cut the frame (it's a bit crooked I'm afraid - design feature?) with Spellbinders dies then adhered it with sticky foam to the image. I added satin polka dot ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and some novelty buttons I bought from our local market and used more of the sticky foam roll to adhere the panel to a pink card blank. I thought a bow would look nice (no really I covered a mark on the card with it lol), and I looked for a small tag die and spotted the Sizzix goldfish bowl die which had a fish the exact size I wanted, perfect with the image too. I wrote on it with white gel pen, it says "gon' fishin'".

Come and play Quirky with us.
