When dreams come true!

Hello Crafters!!!
Good Day to all of you!
   Today, I am sooooo excited to announce that I have been asked to join the Tuesday Throwdown Team as a Guest Designer for this month, I'm feeling so honored!!! So, this is my very first post over on the http://tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.in/ challenge blog. This week sponsor is Robyn's Fetish. My image is It's a Dragonfly Day and I tried to give it a new look!!! This week challenge theme is use Paints or Mists.
      I went for a bright card. And I was in a mood  to use watercolors. so I made a watercolor Misted background using Fevicryl acrylic color. I did wet on wet technique which is basically sprayed with water first, then added acrylic colour using Koi Brush and blend them until I was satisfied with the result. Love how the color blended!

 After that I embossed the watercolour paper using Embossing folder Spots from Itsy Bitsy.  Using Spellbinder Nestabilities Large Scalloped Octagons die cut , I added a OHP sheet to make it a shaker card and put some sequins and small beads.
                                                For Dragonfly, I colored it first and then added some colorful beads, pearls, stones, double shade ringlets, iron nails near the wings. And added extra wings using acetate sheet and gave it a 3D look.
 I printed my image two times and color the flowers with my promarkers. I paper pieced the flowers. I cut each and every petal of the flower and gave it a dimension for 3 D look too. Applied glossy accents(new in my stock) and black beads at the center of the flower and popped my image. Here is a closer look:
 I made a border using Jef punches and added colorul gemstones.

 Take a peep at the inside too:

                                    The sentiment is free and I watercolored it and added Sakura golden glaze, some sequins, rhinestones too.
Isn't it looking amazing? In my opinion this card doesn't need no other embellishments. So what do you think?
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
