Mixed Bunch Simple Card

I had fun playing with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and Blossom Punch from the Mini Occasion Catalog.  I decided to use it to try and create some simple cards, which is very hard for me.  I usually end up adding too many layers and embellishments.  This is the first try, what do you think?  I felt like the top corner was a little empty, so of course I added another embellishments.  Take a look at the card below.  

I added a butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies.  What do you think, does either card count as a simple card?  I am hoping for simple but stunning card.   Let me know what you think.

For some extra shimmer, I sprayed with the homemade Frost White Shimmer Mist (recipe can be found on the sidebar.    

Thanks for stopping by!
