Austen Silhouette Congratulations Card

A close friend of mine, who has published several books through Christian and ebook presses, has just published her first Harlequin novel!  She's been trying to get published with them for ages, and I'm so proud of her.

So I sent her a card. :)

I brought out my Papertrey Ink Simply Jane (Austen) stamp set and my new Petra's large ovals die and got to work.

I die cut the oval, inking through the die and around the exposed bits, then used a darker purple for the silhouettes in the center.  I also clear embossed them, so they shimmer a bit.  The corners looked a bit bare, so I added a stamped image to flesh them out a bit.  Voila!
