Farm Fresh Friday: Pinky Pink

Happy Farm Fresh Friday bloggers! Today I'm sharing with you guys a card that says a lot without saying much at all. What do I mean you ask? Well the other day my friends and I decided to be each others' Valentine since all of our husbands would be gone and we planned an elaborate girls day out including shopping and dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. We decided that our kids should look festive so we bought them all matching valentine-y outfits.... or rather we tried. Turns out Valentine's day is apparently only for girls, the boy's departments had NOT ONE single Vday shirt! We were so upset and went on a rant that ended in a fit of giggles from passers by which ended up making us laugh as well. Long story short, we settled on a nice red collared button down that her gorgeous little blue eyed son looked super handsome in, amid the girls in their various red and or pink ensembles, with the decision to teach him to be a true gentleman as well as cultivate an early love of V day ;) To celebrate our decision I used Heart Ian for this week's Pinky Pink Challenge

Heart Ian

Doesn't he look just dapper in that pink scarf? I've always loved the combination of pinks and blues and this seemed like a perfect time to pull out some cutesy heart paper and puffy heart stickers to match. I colored Ian with my copic markers and used my wink of stella brush pen to add some sparkle to the little heart he's carrying (and forced myself to leave it at that). The sentiment is from  The Greeting Farm's Flutter Heart clear set, stamped in versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Since this is a guy card, I wanted to keep it simple so I refrained from covering it with sparkles and flowers and added a strip of blue paper to bring out the image and sentiment and really pop against the pink. Don't forget to swing by The Greeting Farm's Blog and see what awesome inspiration my DTeamates have for you and while you're at it, link up your best pink projects too! See you there,
