Favourite colour combo with basic grey!

Good morning all!
Well it's that time again! time for our fortnightly challenge over at Basic grey challenges This time we would love to see your fab creations using your favourite colour combo and of course a basic grey product!
I have gone for pink and brown! the stamp I have used sweet tilda with flower, i have followed fab sketch 46 from sketch and stash, 

I have stamped her onto the neenah natural colour card stock which is quite cream, but I think it gives a real softness to the copic colours! I have had this cardstock for an absolute age but keep forgetting to use it! It is one of those things that everytime I use it I think, "hmm that's lovely must use it more often"! then 6 months later I realise I haven't used it! the papers are the beautiful basicg grey Curio, Another Favourite that doesn't get to play as often as it should! the colouring has been done with my copics, the mat is a spellbinders die, the tag is a do-hickey and the flower is Prima!
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Sweet stampin challenge - ribbons and bows
Allsorts challenge - any die will do
Tomic - magnolia stamp with flower and a tag
simply magnolia - Garden blooms
Sketch n stash - free sketch, I have used 46 and stash is neenah natural cardstock!
Lovely hanglar and sweet magnolia -  fav colour combo
Papertake weekly - bingo - Diag. ribbon, free and blooms

So don't forget to pop on over to the Basic grey challenge and see the fab inspiration my teamies have for you! and I will be back a little later with my Craft your days away DT card!
so see ya later!
