Pink by Design Two Year Anniversary Extravaganza: Challenge 1

In celebration of Pink by Design's two year anniversary, Sarah, Kyle (Mr. Pink!), and the Design Team have planned challenges for the entire day on the hour!  There will be prizes for each challenge, and a free stamp set if every challenge is completed!  I'm hoping I can finish all the challenges.  It's a great way to get myself crafting since otherwise I'd probably just be sleeping all day, haha.

Challenge #1 was a Home Decor project.  Since I just got married, I decided to make a door sign for our new apartment door.  I cut out the letters of our last name in 3 inches using the Mickey Font.  I didn't want to go all out with Disney stuff, so I just used the font.  Then I cut out the shadow as well in pink and green, which were the colors we had for our wedding!

Although we didn't have to use Pink by Design stamps, I was trying to work it in somehow, and I had a brilliant idea (okay, I thought it was brilliant) to use the "Faith" stamp set (one of my all-time favorites) to emboss "Faith," "Hope," "Love," and "Joy" in white on each letter.  I pray that our home (apartment or house, wherever we are in the future as well) will be filled with those things!

I used an EK Success border punch for the black background.  I actually opened my drawer (my punches are the one thing that I actually have organized in the new apartment!) and had Howard choose one!  I didn't want to choose a girly one, so it was easier to have him do it.  He chose that one because it was all about the lines, which he likes because he's all about the architectural/technical/geeky things.  

The last step was to add some pink and green twine, which I had on hand because we used them to tie the chocolate pretzel bags for our wedding favors at the church.  I didn't think I'd enjoy doing this home decor project that much, but I actually did!  It definitely brings some cheer to our door!
