Grey or brown?

This is for Mercy's sketch 71:
I've used the colours for Cards & Things colour challenge 29:

I should explain that when I saw the colours on screen I thought the chocolate chip was grey, so there are greys on the image (another of the Hunkydory vintage ladies collection) and it's only now that I realise it should have been brown - however, the distressing with tattered rose distress ink on to the diamond embossing (cuttlebug folder) light green card - for the sage shadow - has produced a kind of brown look. I'm not sure whether I've redeemed myself or not - or whether I'm digging a bigger hole with the explanation!

The button was cut from an Ellison die cut using a piece of Fancy Pants paper from my scrap box.

Simon says: 'buttons, bows and bling' - silver mirror surrounding the image and the girl's dress is itself very blingy!
