Trying Out a Different Style

I have an oldie for you today.  This was me highly inspired by Kristina Werner's (note the white faux stitching, rounded corners and Kraft cardstock) and Dawn McVey's (note the border on the focal layer) clean styles.  I love how their cards turn out, but am not sure how much I like my interpretation of their styles.  Am I really a clean and graphic girl?  No, I don't think so.  So it is a bit off. 

I think this was also a "quick" card for me. I believe I have mentioned before I am a s-l-o-w crafter.  I rarely finish anything in a class (I tend to leave things unfinished to complete later), I can spend hours on a single card (people would be mystified if they knew how long it can take) or even do parts of a card over time if there is not a specific occassion (one of the reasons I like having someone in mind when I make a card).  Seriously, if a card takes under an hour to create (including fumbling around with ideas and products) I am thrilled.  I am feeling like a crafty speed demon.    

Without further ado here is the card:
