Impression Obsession Old Is New

Hi!  Today we could really feel fall in the air.  Not complaining here, because I am a hard-core fan of autumn.  I love everything about it.  
I had a piece of this watercolored background left from a previous card, and decided to use it on a new card today.  So I cut it down, added it to a white A2 card, and added the verse.  
All stamps are some older stamps from Impression Obsession.  This background stamp is one of my all time favorite Cover-A-Card stamps.  Here are the stamps I used:
I inked the Fancy Leaves background stamp with distress inks, then spritzed it and stamped it onto watercolor paper.  I added another spritz to get the ink moving a bit for more of a painterly look.  
I added the In My Heart verse, and a strip of the painted background, then cut a leaf shape and attached it.  That's all there is to it.  I'm keeping it CAS, which is not my usual MO.  
I am adding my card to these challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to visit the other designer's blogs for more inspiration for using our older stamps.  You can find the links to their blogs HERE.
