CTD178 - Simply Jane

It's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown!
This week our hostess is Keva who chose some wonderful rich colors along with a beautiful inspiration photo to inspire all of us.
For my card I used the new Papertrey Ink stamp set Simply Jane with the coordinating die.  As soon as I saw this stamp set from Papertrey I knew I had to have it, I'm an avid reader and lover of historical fiction, the Regency and Victorian era as well as Jane Austen books.  I absolutely love anything from the 1700 to the early 1900, the clothing, jewelry and hats were all so beautiful.  I'm also enjoying watching the Masterpiece Theater - Downton Abbey program that's on every Sunday evening.
Supplies: Simply Jane + coordinating dies, Limitless Layers Oval dies, Dearest Jane dp - PTI, Nestie die, Embossing folder, Ribbon, Buttons, Twine, Foam tape.
