CAS #3 and my Inspiration for it

I am just loving the CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenges over at SCS. This card came together pretty quickly because there was a layout given and I had an inpsiration piece that I used. I have a bottle of my favorite Bath & Body Works shower wash. (I have hoarded a few of these because it's a discontinued scent.) I've been looking at it everyday thinking how calm and serene the packaging is. So I thought, what better than to use it for a color inspiration. (You can click on the pictures to enlarge)

I used PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock for the base and image, but I think it's difficult to tell with my horrible picture taking abilities. (I really need to read the manual to my camera.) The ribbon on it is SU's So Saffron Twill and it is just YUMMY!!! I got it as a RAK and, surprise, hoarded it also. I might have to place a quick SU Order just to get some of it from the SAB. ;)

Stamps: SU Thoughts & Prayers, Short & Sweet
Ink: SU Certain Celery & Summer Sun
Paper: SU Barely Banana, Certain Celery, PTI Vintage Cream
Misc: SU So Saffron Twill Ribbon, MS Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals

Card Positioning and Kristina Werner Challenge

I thought I would try a couple of challenges and decided to combine them. I'm sure y'all are sick of seeing the PTI Damask stamp set. But just wait, I'm not done yet. Love, love, love this set!! Not sure if I like the damask on the side of the sentiment, but it looked so lonely without something. What do you think?

Stamps: PTI Damask Designs, SU Friendly Words
Ink: SU Old Olive, Versamark
Paper: SU More Mustard, Really Rust, Old Olive
Misc: SU Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Rhinestone Brad, Dimensionals
