Penny Black blog hop and 100 Weekof challenges meets Basic grey photo inspiration and Saturday Crafter

OK so where to start! I thought I would have a peek and see what challenges would inspire me today to make a card for the same neighbour I made the card the other day for her husband to give to her. she loveeeeeeeeeeees her garden so this cute little hedgehog is just right, although it is a stickeroo and I have had it for some time as I did not want to use them all up! but its going to a good home where it will be treasured so that's ok tehehee.

So Penny Black Saturday Challenge have this Awesome Sketch that I just love and know I will use time and time again! I love sketches they are so inspiring.... and then while hunting for things to go with the image I saw the Basic Grey challenge a photo inspiration so I decided to see what I could do with that!
I have used the little brad heart to incorporate the hearts in the photo and also the red in the heart and ladybird then the pale blue of the papers from the walls, the tad of blue and green from the dolls dress and shows in the flowers ((( Thank-you Squirrel for pointing secret Santa in the right direction!))) and the white and texture of the lace from the baskets under the bed, I used the Martha Stewart punch that reminds me of bunting under the lace.
and from the last part of inspiration I found at Secret Crafter Saturday have a yummi recipe..... 
3 embellishments : flowers, a brad, and the raffia lace,
2 papers : both basic grey,
1 image : the stickeroo.
Ok so enough talk here is the card...
I am really happy with this card thanks for the inspiration
