Crafting musketeers colours of autumn challenge

This is my design card for Crafting musketeers: colours of autumn. I'm on team B, so this is for mid-month inspiration. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and click here to join in the challenge.

The challenge is being sponsored by the Hobby House and this is the prize:

I used papers from my offcuts box, tearing and brushing with distress inks - a mix of brushed corduroy, spiced marmalade, fired brick and mustard seed. The embossed panel in the middle was created with floral vine embossing folder run through the eBosser. The leaves are a couple that I've had for ages. The cream blossoms (brushed with distressed inks) and crystal jewels are from the Hobby House.
