Graphicus February Challenge

The challenge this month is "Home" as the topic and "Brick and Teal" for the colours. For some reason I have found this a very difficult challenge and I'm still not sure that I'm totally satisfied with the card I have made so your comments will be very much appreciated.

The backing papers are both Graphicus and the heart is part of the Elusive Images Harlequin Rose plate which I love. The heart is heat embossed using bronze embossing powder, I then cut it all out (including the inside bits!) and stuck it to the same colour card that the backing paper is layered onto, I then sprayed it with gold glimmer mist and highlighted bits of it with stickles crystal. I have tried to "lift" bits of the heart to give it a slightly distessed look that I thought went with the backing papers. Unfortunately the brick colours look quite orangy in the photograph.
