Most Distressed!

No, not me - it's the challenge over at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com Here it is.....

"Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occaision but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear."

Well, to be honest I'm not sure if I went a bit overboard with this - is it distressed or is it just a grungy mess? You decide!
Papers are Papermania, I cut the flowers from templates then scrunched them before inking the edges and layering. Stamp is Heidi Grace, raffia is from the Works and sentiment is a rub-on.
I await your verdicts!
