Pink Elephant meets Colour Create

I've only just managed to get this card made in time using the Pink Elephant Challenge sketch. I've used the colour scheme of this week's Colour Create challenge which is 'Blue & Brown', and included the optional extras - 'Lace and Pearls'. My image is 'Lola with Bird' by Rachelle Anne Miller (from Sugar Nellie), the papers are from the 'Granola' pad by BasicGrey, and the lace is from Hobbycraft. In place of the flourish on the sketch, I've used a spray of flowers (from Sarah's Cards Ltd).
