Playing with Distress Inks

Not my usual type of card today but I really like it. After watching Sarah from S J Crafts doing a demo with distress inks I decided to have a play with mine which generally sit unloved on my desk.
I bought this stamp which is from Papermania collection called Beautiful - Entomologist. I inked the piece of card with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then stamped the image using the same ink. My Dp is also from Papermania , the doily is a diecut as are the corners. I addes some seam binding and some lace from my stash along with a handful of pearls and a couple of paper roses. What do you think?

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Lavender & lace
Bearly Mine Challenge - Pearls & Lace
Ribbon Carousel Blog  - Button & Bows
Fashionista Challenge - Winged Things
