Clean & Simple #2

This is my entry for the CAS Challenge on SCS. It called for a button on your card. Now, if miss Antsy Pants here was more awake at midnight during PTI's latest release, she would have had a nice new PTI Button on her card. But noooo. I was so anxious to get the Damask set and I was so tired since it was 2 hours past my bedtime, I completely forgot to get the buttons! Argh. Oh well, it will be on my next order.

So now this card was supposed to take me about 10 minutes to put together. I had the sketch, colors and stamps all picked out. All I had to do was ink up the stamp, use some Embossing Powder and voila. But noooo. It took me about 45 minutes and 5 different tries. I couldn't get a complete impression with the stamp. I kept forgetting to use the Embossing Buddy. Or I stamped it crooked. Finally I said this one has got to do. I must move on to other projects! So after much muttering under my breath I put this together and crossed another challenge off my list.

Stamps: PTI Damask Design
Ink: SU Whisper White Craft Ink, PTI Sweet Blush
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush & White
Misc: SU Scallop Edge punch, misc button, PTI Sweet Blush Satin Ribbon, Pink thread, SU White EP
