Pink By Design - Challenge: Favorite Patterns!

So happy you are stopping by today!! Today is my first time posting with Pink By Design since all the great changes on the DT! We are now split into "teams" and post on a specific theme throughout the week! Each of three posts during the week has a different topic including a challenge, a technique/tip and a day of projects other than cards! So fun to have to think out of the box! 

The theme of the week is to use our favorite patterns! Mine is Damask - as you can tell by my blog! :) 

Damask Background 

I decided to use some gold embossing powder I have been admiring for a while, but never used. 

I used some glimmery gold paper for my top layer and added three hearts, embossed with the PBD Damask pattern and gold embossing powder (TIP: I find my embossing works the best when I use a Versamark watermark ink pad). 

I actually stamped and embossed a sheet of white paper, then fed it into my Cameo and cut three hearts. Then I added a ribbon onto the back of each one, popped them up on foam stickers and added some bows. I was going for simple and pretty... 

The inside is stamped with the sentiment 'Thinking of you with love this holiday season' from the super popular Christmas Wishes stamp set. 

Make sure you stop over at the Pink By Design blog to see what the other ladies have done with their favorite patterns!! THEN, make sure to link up your projects below using your favorite pattern in your project! You have a week to enter your projects and you don't have to use a PBD stamp, although we love to see them! :)

The winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Pink By Design store!!
