My First Basic Grey Challenge

I saw this sketch from the Basic Grey Challenge Blog whilst blog hopping today and really liked the layout, so I thought I would have a go.
I really like the Eva papers from Basic Grey, so decided to use those on my card and I already had an image coloured in that matched the papers, so away I went and this is what I came up with.

I was quite pleased with it really and I love Pink and Green together, just hope I haven't over done it!
PAPERS: Basic Grey Eva
IMAGE: 'Tilda with Bird'
COLOURED WITH: W H Smith Watercolour Pencils
FLOWERS: Prima Hydrangas
BRADS: Papermania
SWIRL: A gift from Kay on the DC site.
Thanks for looking, Michele xx
