Every leaf is a flower

I have made this card for the current challenge at Clearly Besotted, you can either use the colour palette or make an autumn themed card.

I have used my Autumn Flowers stamp set to make this very clean and simple card - I think this is the first card I have every made that just involves stamping and distress inks.


My inspiration came from a card created by Nancy Ferb that I saw on Pinterest.  I used one of my acrylic blocks to stamp the base, the text section is one corner of a Hero Arts stamp, the leaves and sentiment are both from the Clearly Besotted Autumn Flowers stamp set.  I only used two Tim Holtz distress inks - Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy, I  inked the leaf stamp once, stamping the second leaf without re-inking.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
