Boys don't wear PINK!

That's what my daughter Toni told me last night when I showed her this card. Well, the conversation started like this....

Me: Mom (that's what I call her), what do you think of this card?

Toni: I like it! mmmm, but, is that a boy or a girl?

Me: It's a boy!

Toni: Boys don't wear pink!

Me: Well, real men wear pink!

Toni: Only in your cards, Mom!

This cute little boy bundled in pink and brown is from Stampendous. I got him a year ago from Eclectic Paperie and the stamp is currently on sale. The layout is from Jen's of Iheart2Stamp Sketch For You To Try couple of weeks ago and the color combination is from Kristina Werner's color inspiration from last week. I know I'm running a week behind...LOL!

Stamp: Snowbound by Stampendous

Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and Chocolate Chip card stock and Bella Rose DSP from Stampin' Up

Ink: Basic Black classic ink and re-inkers from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Red Satin Ribbon, Crystal Stickles, Pink heart rhinestones and Stampin' Dimensional

Yes, real boys do wear pink....my 11 year old son (and boy is he a true boy) insisted on wearing a pink shirt to graduation last year. I went on a mad search for a boys pink dress shirt!!!! I did find one and he looked so fab with his khakis and pink!!!! I love your card and the colors are perfect!!! Great job.
