Homespun Affair Color Challenge - June

Hey everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend!! I know we did!! My husband has had a little more time off than usual and we have been doing all kinds of fun things with the girls. It's been great!!! 

Last night I found time to get a card put together for the Homespun Affair June Color Challenge. I LOVE the colors in the challenge - so bright and summery!! The colors are salmon, pink, and yellow


I have been really wanting to work with some glitter and this was the perfect project!! :)


How cute and summery is that?? 


I used some foam tape to make sure these little suckers stood out - not that all the glitter didn't already make them pretty eye catching! :) Speaking of glitter... A little trick I'd like to share when I use glitter is to spritz the glittered pieces (before putting the cuts together) with some hairspray to keep the glitter from falling off all over the place. :)


Of course I had to add a Pink By Design sentiment... 

Here is what I used for this project... 
- Martha Stewart glitter (adhered with a large ZIG 2 way glue pen)
- Popscicle cut from Simply Charmed (YES - I had to dust off my cricut!)
- loop borders from the Silhouette store
- paper from the Carnival stack from DCWV
- sentiment from Be Mine by Pink By Design


I am also linking this card up over at Pink Cricut for Link Up Tuesdays
Make sure you head on over to check out the Homespun Affair Magazine!! It has some awesome information in it!!! Love it! And you still have a couple days to link up your projects to this color challenge! Hurry! :)

ALSO head on over to Ginger Snaps Scraps to add some of your projects to the Link Up Party going on!!



OH! And just one more thing! :) Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner of the twine giveaway I had over at the Pink By Design blog!! Make sure to stop back to see if it's you
