Simple Blessings

I snuck into my craft room this morning before my mom stopped over for her visit and made a card for a few challenges.  This is my second post for today, be sure to scroll for my Wee Memories post.

The first is the ATU challlenge - No Layers

I used the colors from The Play Date Cafe:


I made a really quick CAS card using the Unity Stamp set Simple Blessings (which happens to be on sale!).  I just got it in the mail yesterday and had to ink it up.  This is also for the following challenges: The Kraft Journal - Welcome Fall;  The Unity Challenge - falling leaves; and the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge - fall.  The twine is some May Arts twine available at Ribbon Carousel.
