We have a winner for the Close to My Heart stamp set!!!!! Lisa Banke -Lahiff, you are the winner of the stamp set! Please send me your mailing address either through Facebook or to my email at 

Color Challenge!
We have a color challenge going on right now! Using three colors pink, salmon and yellow, create a NEW project. It doesn't matter what you create! It's up to you...scrapbook layout, card, home decor, edible treats, etc.

I painted the frame pink with acrylic paint. After painting the frame, I added some pearls around the heart of the frame.  I used a salmon pink and canary yellow Copic Marker to color the flowers and the stamped butterflies. The flowers are from Prima. The butterflies come from the Pair a Phrase stamp set from Close to My Heart. I used ink in Tulip around the edges of the tags. The stamped sentiment is also from the Pair a Phrase set. I added some pearls to give it some more dimension.
Now it's up to you to create something!!! So get you crafting hat on and show me your best work!!! You have until June 25th to post your work! Winners will be announced in the July edition of A Homespun Affair!!! Good Luck!
