Obsessed with Clean and Simple - Take 3

So here is a 3rd card that I made for the Fall DT call for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple challenges. The challenges that Jen posted sounded like a ton of fun so I thought I'd play, regardless!!
This time, I decided to try out an Autumn card (some of my favorite to make!!).
I started out this card by stamping the square stamp using Close to Cocoa onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I added these leaves that I made. They were simple, 3 colors of Twinkling H2O's onto watercolor paper and then stamped with the leaf images. I finished it off with a solid sentiment stamped with black ink.
This square stamp has been hiding in my "extra stamps" box and now that I have found it I think it might be used much more often, especially for CAS cards!!
Don't forget, you can see all of my CAS cards on my SCS gallery (see the link to the right) if you are interested. I'll be back tomorrow with Take 4.

Gorgeous coloring on your leaves, Donelda! The square stamp looks just like cork; it's great texture without the extra effort!!

This is so nice. That stamped square looked like either ripped paper glued on or some other 3d item. Great job on adding some realism to this card.

Your leaves are lovely. I really like the rustic squares behind them too.
