Valentine's Card!

How cute are photo Valentine's Day Cards?! My cousin wanted to do something different instead of sending out Christmas Cards so I designed this V-Day card printed on both sides with her DARLING children on it! The cards were printed on pearl photo cards with matching hot pink envelopes!

*NOTE: we are adding a whole new "Family" portion to the Pink Piggy website so check back soon for more information on cards for the family that are custom designed and the best part is that they are so affordable!

Mimosa Yellow

Pantone announces Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.

"The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance," explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation."

Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors. Look for women's accessories, home furnishings, active sportswear and men's ties and shirts in this vibrant hue.

This is an insperation board I created using the mimosa yellow color of the year! I'm really loven how fresh it looks and I think this is a great color or even accent color for a wedding!
