My ever first CAS card - Keep it Simple

Keep it simple over at 

This is my try! 
Having had thoughts about how to solve this, for me new thing, -
I on my way to town, "stumpled " over this beautiful leaf ,and brought
it home with me. 

I used one of That`s Crafty surfaces, added lots
of gesso , also to give texture, and adhered the already
dry leaf. Then using love hearts from the
                                        Words stencil: Love , ---   words from Lynne`s Affirmations sets ,                                                                       and From Inspirational Quotes , Stamp set 2 .

                                          The hearts were stenciled with Archival Ink Leaf Green.
