Whose says pink isn't manly ??!

Hi All,

Kristina has her color challenge up and this week has challenged us with the following colors: brown, rose red, mustard yelllow and white. What a great group of colors!

So I pulled out the colors that I had and made a little man card using Taylor's Friday Cupcake Sketch #67 and the stamps from her newest release of stamps called Boys will be Boys. I loved using pink on a Father's Day card - who says a little pink isn't manly?

The sentiment reads: "There's no tie when it comes to you!" . Love the sentiment and the cute ties - all of which are paper pieced. Because it is a man card - and because I have a tendency to get all swirly, girly whirly - I left out some ribbon and tried to keep it simple and clean.

Hope all of you are enjoying a great weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner :)
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
