Thinkin' Pink...

As a mom to boys, there isn't much pink or girly in my house.  In fact my house is full of cars, airplanes, trains and Legos!  So when I saw the new Paper Play challenge to make your project pink I seriously jumped at the chance!   
There Is No One

For my card I used the Hero Arts Big Flower stamp.   I had an idea to use the stamp in a different way, but after doing a coule of test runs with my idea I knew it wouldn't work.  The card layout is based on a Clean & Simple sketch.  I stamped the flower using SU! Melon Mambo ink and then colored the center with SU! Pretty In Pink ink.  The piece was matted with Melon Mambo cardstock and hot pink rhinestones were added to the card to finish it off.  The sentiment from the PTI set Year of Flowers Larkspurs was stamped in Pretty in Pink.

Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Melon Mambo; Ink:  SU! Melon Mambo & Pretty in Pink; SU! Scalloped Edge punch; Kaiser Craft pink rhinestones; Stamps:  Hero Arts Big Flower; PTI YOF Larkspurs

Beautiful, Rosemary! The description of your life could have been mine....I was in your shoes (even had a male dog) for many years, but now I have converted one of the boys' bedrooms to my pink paradise! So just hold on.....there's a light at the end of your tunnel!
