Distressed out

Totally distressed or is it stressed .....not sure, however my card is def. distressed but still had to add bling in the form of gold machine stitching....which is a pain as it loops at the back but the front looks ok and I have used gold square mosaic gems from papermania on the ribbon as I didn't have a slider thinking about it I should have made one derrr..... it was late at night when I made this card. The papers are Wild asparagus from MME which are still my favourites. The stamp is from crafty individuals and the background is a mixture of glimmer mists however the flower was spritzed in irr.gold and starfish, the background papers have been distressed using aged mahogany.
Challenges:
Creative Beli challenge.....theme is colour spray, any excuse to use glimmer mists and thats for me.
Simon Says.......distressing.
ABC Challenge....R is for red.

Mojo Monday......followed sketch.
Ink on my Fingers........Birds.
