Leaf Themed Card for Numerous Challenges

I spent a lot of time deciding on how many stamp challenges I could fit this card into as is the challenge at pile it on #40.  This is a new challenge for me along with some of the others ones I've chosen to enter this week.

pile it on #40--card made for a child (I think the smiley face on the maple leaf qualifies for this)
My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #70  Falling Leaf
Friday Mashup! -- Fall leaves with Twine
Frosted Design Fabulous Friday -- Something Embossed
Dynamic Duos -- Cherry Cobler and choice of other color
Cupcake Inspirations --photo of leaf topped cupcakes as inspiration

Here is my card:

The leaves were cut with the Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge (pg.78 at 2" and 1.75") and the acorn and oval were cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge (acorn pg.36 at 1.25" and oval2 from page 32 at 1.25".)  Papers are CTMH Colonial White background, Cranberry (Cherry Cobbler substitute for Dynamic Duos), Honey and Kraft.  I used the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder to texturize the oak leaves and acorn and the Spots and Dots folder to dry emboss the kraft stripe.  A deckle edge scissor was used to trim the cranberry stripe.  The greeting stamped in Cranberry ink is from Hooray Bouquet and the smile face stamp is from a very old wood CTMH set called Scrapbook Kids.
