BasicGrey Challenge 20 meets Colour Create Challenge 1

I've combined the colour scheme of 'Pink, Green & Brown', of the first ever Colour Create Challenge with the fab sketch for this weeks BasicGrey Challenge, as it was a perfect excuse to use some of the gorgeous BasicGrey 'Eva' papers. My main image is a Sugar Nellie stamp by Leanne Ellis, called 'Talking to the birds', which I've watercoloured to match the papers. I've embossed the green paper with the Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder, and the sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy.
