Primrose Blessings & Simply Jane Framed

I've popped away for a bit to show you another couple of cards card I've made this past weekend...one using a free digital primrose image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps and can be found here!

I did some research to see how to color the delicious primroses, and found some fabulous pictures of blue ones--and it coordinated with the colors in the Frilly & Funkie inspiration picture, so I decided to go with that! :)

Here's the card (sorry for the poor photo quality)~

I hope you like it!  I had fun finally using the postcard embossing folder I bought over a month ago! ;)

And here's the second card~

This card gave me fits.  I ruined about 5 pieces of acetate trying to get my vision into fruition!  But I have to say, it was worth it!  I LOVE the way this turned out! :)   Like I said above, this card really reflects my love for Jane Austen--I'm an Austen girl through and through!  I've learned so much about life from reading her books and I think I'd love to meet her right away when I get to heaven! ;) 

 Don't forget that I have blog candy, and I hope you join in some of these fabulous challenges!  Happy stamping, friends! :)

Stunning use of acetate - I hate the stuff - always gives me issues - just looking at options for CASual Friday now and crying....

Also wanted to say that I've replied to your email about my prize from Technique Tuesday (did it 2pm my time today, it's 9.30 pm now) so was worried you hadn't got it reading the comment you left on my blog today.

Beautiful, beautiful card Mynnette! I love the design and the coloring is wonderful. I also found this free digi print on the Free Vintage Digitals Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Free-Vintage-Digital-Stamps/213228305421194#!/photo.php?fbid=311787645565259&set=a.213235198753838.51673.213228305421194&type=3&theater It's so pretty!

Absolutely beautiful work! Your first card is sensational - wonderful simplicity and the texture you have achieved and that image is gorgeous - what beautiful color work too! I love your take on the photo inspiration - very clever and creative. Your second card is just lovely too.
