I did a bit of masking for my card but if masking isn't your thing you could certainly stamp the leaves and then add a fussy cut dahlia. I masked the stamped dahlia and then added some leaves from Vintage Leaves stamp set. They are a perfect size for the large flower.
This layout is one of my favorites and a great way to use strips of designer series paper. In this case I used the Hello Honey pattern from the Season of Cheer paper series. Even though this is a Christmasy series of paper, this particular pattern works for fall as well as winter. I didn't add any embellishments because this will be mailed.
