Quirky spring card

I just picked up the brand-new Basic Grey paper pack "Kioshi" and I had to use it for a card right away. I just love the quirky feel to the designs. They feel spring-y to me without being sweet or pastel-y (are either of those words???).

The stamp is from Stamping Bella - her dress and shoes are paper pieced with a bit of Stickles added to the flower centres. I also added Stickles (black diamond) to her hair - it provides a wonderful shine. At first I added a traditional style bow but it just didn't suit the feeling I was going for so I retied it, purposely making it loose and lopsided. It probably looks like a sloppy bow but I can't help myself - I just like the way it turned out (LOL).

I'm entering this card into several challenges, as follows:
