Are you ready for this week's Paper Pretties Challenge? This week PWC150 is a color challenge to use pink, green and a neutral.
I wanted to use this "Cooper" stamp because I just don't make many cards for boys or men but pink and green are usually very feminine.
Looking at the image it became clear to me that pink could be used on the egg and that everything else could be done in green's and tans. If the men folk in your life are liberal you could give Cooper a pink shirt. Keeping it fit for a boy meant that ribbon and flowers would be off limit. I did add a button and some twine with a charm to dress it up a little.
If you need to make some Easter gift tags or cards there's still time to get the "Easter Babies" digital set. They're being sold as a fundraiser. All the proceeds (less PayPal Expenses) will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. How sweet a deal is that? You get an adorable set of stamps and you do a charitable deed at the same time.
