SC270 Shabby or Chic?

This card is based on SCS's SC270.This card is my least favourite of all the cards I've made recently. I thought I would try sponging the edges for a distressed shabby look and I have to say I don't really like it. I contemplated not even sharing this card, but figured I may as well, we all have bad days! I've seen other people do this technique and I like it but I don't like the way it turned out here - it just looks dirty in my opinion. I didn't like the way the white image panel seemed so bright against everything else being sponged so I sponged the whole thing as well. I realized afterwards, it would have been easier to just use vanilla cardstock! Oh well, hindsight is 20/20!
