Papertrey January Blog Hop

I couldn't resist the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month. It is called Pretty in Pink and, with Valentine's around the corner, it is a perfect theme.

I pulled out my Simply Jane stamp set & dies and some Soft Stone, Sweet Blush, and Hibiscus Burst paper .  This what I came up with:

I drew in some grass at the bottom of the frame and used Meadow Greens for the "tree" in the background because I pictured Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth out for a walk like in that last scene of the movie version of Pride and Prejudice. "You have bewitched me, body and soul..." Swoon!

I embossed the frame with the Woodgrain Impression Plate. Some Perfect Pearls in Pewter was dusted lightly on the frame give a little contrast.  I added some ribbon, a flower, and a doily. I added Clear Rock Candy Dry Stickles to the figures so they would stand out but still show the Hibiscus Burst color of the paper.

Die-cut leaf is from Meadow Greens

All products are from Papertrey Ink except: Perfect Pearls, Stickles, ribbon, flower and doily.

I made a second card (not part of the Blog Hop but thought I'd share) because I just could not stop using the stamp set:
