Simply Jane Background Card

I made this card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge: Stamping Random Background Patterns.  I only used stamps from the Simply Jane set.

I started by stamping a light blue frame on blue cardstock.  I wanted the girls to show up a bit more, so I used a darker blue ink for them, masking the bottom of the frame so their skirts wouldn't go over it.

I die cut this piece out using a slightly too large Spellbinders oval.  I decided I wanted some contrast with the panel, so I inked the inner rim of the die and put the oval through again, getting a nice rim around my piece.

For the card back I used the same blue cardstock and light blue ink.  This time I used the bouquet stamp (minus the stems) and a small single flower image to do a random background.

The label is another Spellbinder's die with a Jane Austen quote in the dark blue ink.

To finish the card I added some self-adhesive rhinestones.
