La Soubrette in Pink and Grey

Hi folks
Not much more happening in the Cubbyhole today from yesterday, but I have finished another card.
This time using "La Soubrette" from Rick St Dennis' fabulous collection of images. This one is only in the Zibbet Shop at the moment.
The colours chosen were inspired by the Graphit "Colouring Crazy Challenge" - use greys.
I used the pinky greys (from the 93xx range) and pink for this lovely lady.

Mounted onto pearlised grey after dotting around her with pale green grey (9201)

The papers used are from the docrafts "Madame Payraud" collection teamed with a piece of pink spotted vellum mounted onto more pearlised dark grey. 

The swirls are die cut from dark pink card (left over from another project) and coloured with 9307 graphit pen.
 A few feathers, a pearl pin and a glitzy metal flower shape with a single pink rose bud as in the picture.. A couple of pearly brads to secure the vellum.

I'd like to enter this card ito the challenge at
