Free Printable Card Fronts in JPEG and PNG - Set One

I'm just starting to get into digital cardmaking.  I'm a complete beginner, but feel free to use any of my "experiments" that I post.  Today, I made a card front in both JPEG and PNG.  You can add your own photos, verses, sentiments, etc.  They are 4" by 6".  The vintage floral background is from an antique book, which I think I've already posted on this blog.  The elements are from picmonkey.com.  I always use paint.net to get the transparent png background because it's easy!
