House of Cards October Challenge

It's time for another challenge at the House of Cards.
This month we are asking for cards with:

Add texture &/or Color Challenge
autumn palette

I somehow saw the dark color as more of an eggplant color.  Now it looks more like a really dark green on my screen.  Anyway here's my card.

I used CTMH Poster Tidings in the background and CTMH Bountiful Season for the center.  I added texture to the stitched squares and cut the leaf out and popped it over the ribbon.  Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This card is going to my Chiropracter as an apology for missing a scheduled appointment with them.  I hate when I over commit myself!

Come on over to the House of Cards and show us your colorful creations this month!

Happy Crafting!
