Mojo Monday Sketch #261 & a Color Scheme Challlenge

This card combines requirements for the Society of Stampaholics October challenge - color scheme of camel, amethyst, and charcoal - with the Mojo Monday sketch for the week #261.  Not colors I'd have thought to put together, but not bad.  The photo washes out the color of the camel paper, but if you look in the lower left you get an idea of the actual color.  Not sure why only one corner of the paper didn't wash-out in the lighting!

The sketch called for a wider ribbon than I had, so I put two strips of ribbon side-by-side.  The charcoal mat on the sentiment and the vertical strip add some depth.  The "circles" are Nestabilities Blossom dies (largest and then two smaller ones).  The verticle strip is from Gina K Designs, the Parisian Garden patterned paper pack.  I added three small gems at the bottom corner to give a sense of "grounding", otherwise it felt like the whole focal area was about to float off the left side of the card.  The gems were clear, but I colored them with Copic markers.
