Copics Colour Challenge

I haven't done many challenges lately - other than the Dottie's World ones of course! But when I heard about the new blog devoted to Copics I had to find out more! I'd been fancying getting some Copic markers for some time and this finally pushed me over the edge! Each time a challenge is set they will give use a list of colours to use (if we have them - if not, we use the closest match)

So for the first ever Copic Challenge we were asked to use;

B28 - Royal BlueV06 - LavenderYR07 - Cadmium Orange

I used the closet I had to come up with this.....

Please excuse the colouring, 've only had my pens a few days and I don't have the right kind of paper yet so for a while my image colouring might be a bit pants!

The image is Holly in the garden from the Holly and Madison download collection and the papers are Dream Street. I thought these papers worked quite well with the colour list.
The three tall flowers are supposed to represent the flowers in the basket, I hope it works.

WOW Lou,
I love your card. i especially love how you have coloured the fence different colours rather than just going for a traditional brown fence.
Thank you for joining in our first challenge
