Clean and Simple Shabby card

Now that is one title, I was sure I would never say..I'm making a clean shabby card! So is it clean or is it tell me :D

It was this  video that I had seen and I was so inspired that I had to make it...I loved how the flowers turned out, I could sit and make a dozen if you wanted, but the card did not turn out exactly as I had hoped it would, but it is a start.

I have had this CS from Stampin up given by Sophia Landry, and some sheets of designer paper. I love the thickness of the CS. Shame they're not in India. I love the texture, colors and the weight of the CS. Wonderful to work with.

Did I distress on this card? Ask me what I did not distress..probably the butterfly was the only untouched element.
I distressed the flowers, the edges, the pink strip, scrubbed everything with my emery board.

I tried to put shimmer on the brads in the center, can't say if its visible.
This is for the CAS67, Clean and Simple challenge, though I am late in posting it.

Short post, gotta go make card for OLW#5, or I'll be late for that too..
