Dragonfly Dream -Anything Goes - Animals - Embossing - Coveted

I enjoyed making this card and I used Paints, cardstock, gems and the Happy Birthday metal piece that I all covet. First, I took black glossy cardstock-my last one and, using twinkling H2O's I created the background with a number of different colours.  I took glossy gold and green cardstock for some backing and purple cardstock as well. I stamped the dragonfly image (my animal-I hope and insect counts) in gold and embossed in Egyptian Gold. I coloured the wings in green and purple twinkling H2O's and restamped the wings and coloured them again but cut them out and placed them on top of the first image for some 3D effect(see the 2nd pic:)). I used my last bit of light green ribbon to attach the metal piece and put it all together...Voila!  I hope everyone has a beautiful day and maybe it will get warmer here as the week progresses...let's hope!
