Keep it Simple Sunday - Autumn Leaf

Goodness, where have I been?! Sorry I've been away from the 'ol blog for so long this week, no real reason just busy with life I guess. :-)

It's been ages since I've had a KSS card and this card that I created for last week's Sweet 'n Sassy release party is the perfect fit!

The leaf image on this card, and sentiment, is from the newly released Autumn Leaves stamp set. Isn't it pretty! Check out the entire new release on the SNSS web site!

The creation of this card was simple...I created a mask for the circle, using a Nestibilities die, and then colored in the circle with a variety of Distress Inks. I then stamped the sentiment half in the circle, half out (after removing the mask of course!) The leaf was stamped on a scrap of cardstock, colored with Copics, and attached with foam tape. Three little rhinestones - my obsessive "go-to" lately, finished off the card! I should also mention that this is a smaller than average card, 4.25" square.

Enjoy!
