Lil Patch of Crafty Friends challenge 12

Good evening to all my crafty friends and followers. Todays post is to let you all know that a new challenge has begun today over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
Our challenge is, as always an 'anything goes' theme and we have the following fab sponsors who deserve our thanks:

Ppinkydolls Art -Prize: 3 Images

Flat Friends Boutique -Prize: 5 Images

Concetta Kilmer- Prize: 3 Images

I chose this beautiful image by Flat Friends Boutique called The Happy Couple which I coloured with my Promarkers and chose some beautiful papers from a Michele R paper pad which I recently bought.
I die cut the image on a slightly off centre oval using some Nellie Snellen dies and made a faux nestie. I embossed a panel with an X cut embossing folder and sponged some gold ink over to highlight the leaves. I added some paper flowers and a couple of die cut hearts which I inter linked. The little dragonfly has been in my stash for simply ages and I thought it was finally his time to be used.  The sentiment is a magazine freebie and was also cut with the oval dies. A few clear gems and a little ribbon finished it off:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion #266 -anything goes
