Autumn Distressed Flowers

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a card inspired by the beginning of Autumn using one of my flowers made from an upcycled drinks can. I made this first and used Adirondack inks to make it Autumnal in colour tone.
I then used Memory Box papers I love from last year as a base for my card and used the branches as a focal point to go with my flower and made a heat embossed leaf from another of these papers then cut round the embossed leaf shape. I then heat embossed patterns and a greeting on the card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
