Back out of my comfort zone...

Well I made this card with the intention of entering into the Just Magnolia Challenge as I'm determined not to stay in my comfort zone all the time with smooshy colours and distress inks, but I fear time got away with me and I missed the deadline by about half an hour..still I had other challenges in mind too so it hasn't been a total disaster!!
Ingredients - Stamps - Magnolia -Tilda with Butterfly, Hero Arts cling-dots, Patterned papers - Basic grey, Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts, Distress inks - spun  sugar, tattered rose, worn lipstick, bundled sage, shabby shutters, Mustard seed, Dried marigold, Stickles, gems and ribbon from stash and Sissix die for leaves, clear embossing powder.
