Colour Create Challenge #4

The colour combination for this week's Colour Create Challenge is 'Pink & Grey'...not a combination I'd used before, and after a rootle through my stash, I couldn't even find any suitable papers! Now, I'm a bit of a paper addict, and I honestly thought I'd got all eventualities covered! lol So, I decided not to use any patterned paper at all...shock horror!...and have used a couple of shades each, of pink and grey card. I ran a piece of each colour through my Cuttlebug, with the 'Swiss Dots' and 'Spots & Dots' folders, to add some texture. My main image is by 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse' by Whiff of Joy - I usually colour him brown, but I think he looks good in grey too. The optional extra this week is 'Cute & Cuddly'...well Henry is definitely cute, and he's cuddling a cupcake...
I've combined him with a sentiment from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, the grey brads are by Papermania, the heart-shaped brad is from Tescos, and the lace is from Hobbycraft.
