I love Jane Austen

I love Jane Austen.  I love the books, I love the miniseries and movie adaptations, everything.  I bought the Simply Jane clear stamp set, matching dies and patterned paper from Papertrey Ink a while ago, but had not cracked them open until today, when I saw the soft and subtle colour scheme for this week's JAI challenge.

I love the effect I got from making this flower out of Crumb Cake (aka Kraft) cardstock, then misting with Perfect Pearls - the photo below shows the difference between the plain Crumb Cake and the misted flower.
