Papertake Weekly

My next card was a very difficult one to make as it is going to be put on a grave. Those of you who regularly read my blog will know that we lost a very special auntie just before Christmas. It would have been her birthday on Wednesday and we are going to put flowers on the rave tomorrow. I avoided doing it on Wednesday as I wanted her own children to be able to visit in peace. I'm going to laminate the card and attach it to the flowers. You might think it's a strange choice of image but both Florence and Cec (see the PB card below-it's Cec's birthday on Tuesday) collected hedgehogs!

Anyway, I used Dawny's sketch #9 for this one but turned it on it's side.

The grey paper is by Pink Petticoat, not sure what the pink paper is but I love it and have only got a couple of small pieces left now, image is PB again, the little butterfly was punched (not literally!) and the ribbon is again from Ribbon Oasis.

This card also fits with the Colour Create challenge this week which is

As well as the colours being grey and pink, the other part of the remit is For this week's extra option we would like you to think 'cute and cuddly', but please remember that this is not compulsory. So again, I think I've managed both elements. I'm really loving this challenge blog :))

Awww it's a beautiful card Jackie and for a beautiful if sad reason too. I think it's lovely that you could use the gorgeous hedgehog for this very special card. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Chris x
