Vintage Challenge with {Embellish}

Hi all! Can you believe it's November??! Yikes!  Where does the time go.  Thankfully, I stole a few moments of it to create this card for the Embellish Challenge...yay!  The colors were too enticing to pass up, especially now that November is here and Fall is getting into full swing.  Here are the colors and photo inspirations:
What do you think? I have to say that these aren't colors I use very often (except probably for fall time), so it was a nice creative exercise for me to play with this palette.  The colors I used are Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, and Cajun Craze.  I also, had fun making my flower.  Similar to my peony flower technique, I sprayed the 2 flowers {punched out from the SU! Extra Large Flower Punch} with water, and then balled them up.  Next, you gently open the flowers up and let it dry.  They feel like paper machete when they're done.  So easy and fun!  Here's a close up for you.  You can click on the picture for an even bigger view.
