A Pillow Box - Autumn Splendor! Color Challenge

Weekly Challenge #3: AUTUMN SPLENDOR! Color Challenge

I created my first Pillow Box
It is 8" tall
It was a bit hard to combine colors outside of my comfort zone, but I think I did pretty good!
The colors are grey, orange, tan and burgundy. And I kept true to them!

 Materials used:
Cricut Expression
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More
French Manor
AC Cardstock - Autumn Collection
Basic Grey - Ambrosia Collection
Recollections cardstock
Ranger Distress Ink - Walnut
Sequins - Orange/coppery
Beads - Orange/yellowish

Pillow Box cut at 9.71"
Eiffel Tower cut at 5.06"
Label cut three times using hide contour at .59" outer and inner part and third one at .63" outer only.
Key hole cut at 1.25"
For half circles I used the layer for the ciao word and drag it to the edge of the mat so I would not waste paper~ cut at 3" (raised it from the mat a tap to cut it a bit bigger with tan cardstock).
I inked everything.
