CR84FN9 ....Colour Challenge

Today my new toy arrived.....My Grand Calibur.......Due to all the problems with the weather affecting the post, I feel that I have been waiting ages for it.  It was a Christmas present so I can't really complain.  It came with a set a nestabilities Grand Label 1 dies and label 1 dies so I had to have a play with it tonight.

I used the largest die and cut 2 labels which I joined together at the top and made a shaped card. It was so easy. Then I cut 2 more smaller labels from the grand set and used them to mat and layer.....The great thing was I could cut both at the same time in different colours.  The sandwich is much easier to put together also as there are only 3 in differnt colours so you can't really go wrong, and it also comes with the A4 embossing mat.  It is a lovely peice of kit and I can see me using it all the time even just for normal sized dies as you can cut and emboss so many at the one time.
So while I was playing with it I ended up with this.  I thought I would enter it into the CR84FN colour challenge which is Peach, yellow and pale pink.  Unfortunately the top layer which is peach is not showing as I really wanted, it looks more pink than the base card which actually looks lilac although it is pink (is anyone managing to follow this!!)
So entering in:.
