Favourite Colour Combo at Sundays With Crissy

Hi all, today I'm showing my card for the latest challenge at Sundays With Crissy, which this month is Your Favourite Colour Combo. Whatever colours you love combining, show us on your project and you could win your choice of some of Crissy's images.

One of my favourite colour combos is pink and green - I tried some different shades of these colours on my card. I chose a darker pink and a more muted green and I really liked the resulting combo.

I used Crissy's sweet Newborn Joon again, this time merging it with her Meadow Background.

Images: Newborn Joon and Meadow Background, both by Crissy Armstrong
Colouring: Copic markers
DPs and tag: Prima Annalee
Dies: Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Magnolia DooHickey Rose Leaves
Flowers and ribbon from my stash

I'm entering this in these challenges:
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Die cuts and/or punches (die cut leaves, circle and lacey circle)

Do you know your new card is not showing? Been back a couple of times tonight and still can't. It says the page you are looking for doesn't exist? Is it me. Everyone else's seems okay
