Leaves, Flowers & Folds

My card today is another one with a fall flair!  Just love these colors, however they don't seem to stay around long before the bare leaves and dark skies of winter will be here, so I am enjoying the color in my surroundings and in my crafting as long as I can.. LOL
Image is Magnolia and old one.. (that's basically all I have of those)..Papers are DCWV (several years old), flowers and ribbon from my stash.  Colored with ......are you ready?.....not copics.....but.....Distress inks.   LOL.   I bet you all thought I couldn't use any other coloring medium but copics.  

As far as the fold goes.. I am not sure what I was trying to achieve. I was going for an angled tri-fold card but got my measurements all messed up and this what I ended up with, however; I decided it "ain't too bad".   My layout inspiration came from Sunday Sketch and Stamp  (Sketch)... I will enter it in their challenge, however it may be too loose of an intrepretation for them.  If so they can feel free to delete it. 

I would also like to enter it into the following challenges:
Cutie Sunday   Fall Colors
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge   Grid... I have two grid types one in the designer paper and the background behind Tilda which I ran through the cuttlebug.
Magnolia Down Under   fancy folds
