PSC#20 Pretty In Pink - Pink brings to mind all things feminine!  We're looking for projects where pink is the dominant color.  Most of us send cards to special women in our lives - friends we're thinking about.  A hand made card is always an appreciated and thoughtful gesture.   Perhaps a special card for Mom to celebrate Mother's Day?  How about something for a sweet baby girl?     A bookmark for a friend, or a tag for a bouquet of flowers.  Whatever the occasion we want to see pink!  Just make sure you include at least one Poppystamps image on your design!

Just make sure you include at least one Poppystamps image on your design!
