Only Solid Cardstock card - CTD meets FMS

Today I continiue with the 'Only Solid Cardstock' trend, and here's my CAS card.

I used Freshly Made Sketch #557 by Judy:

Only I rotated it to the side, instead of a landscape wide strip, I made it a vertical one. For the element on the main strip, the 'square', I used flowers and leaves. I also added a thin golden strip on each side of the main strip.

For the colors, I followed the beautiful color combo from The Color Throwdown #714, chosen by Amy, who asked to use navy blue, mustrad and brown:

The flowers were made with dies and punches, in the challenge color combo.

My card basis is not white, but light gray. I think it's better with these colors. What do you think?

I didn't add a sentiment, as I still need to decide for what occasion I will give it, so I left it to be added later.

This card also goes for the inspiration challenge at The Card Concept #181, with this beautiful Autumn inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the dramatic scene and colors to make my clean and layered card.

Which brings me to the last, but not least, challenge - Addicted to CAS #231,  where Nancy asked for layers:

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.
