Some Therapy For Me

Hi folks hope today is a good one for you.  I decided to give myself a little therapy, these last couple of days I have been busy stamping and this is the first card that I managed to complete.  I have used the easel card fold the papers are a mixture of MME and K@Co the stamp is from Serendipity which I have had for some time but never inked and is a Geranium.  I have used Tim Holtz Walnut Stain to stamp the image the distressing around the edges is Old Paper ink.  I used a damp brush to spread the colour then for the first time ever I tried the bleaching effect but I am going to practice a little more because I enjoyed it.  I have added lace, flowers, pearls and a butterfly double mounted. I hope you like it and if you have any advice on any of the techniques I have used please let me know.
I am entering this one into the following challenges:

Gingersnaps                       Celebrate
C.R.A.F.T                         Mothers Day or Flowers (I chose flowers) 
Crafty Creations                Use one Colour
 Lili of the Valley               Make an Easel Card
