Guest Bar Tending with Leanne Ellis

Hello Peeps!  I was lucky enough to have a card last month selected for the Top 4 at Raise the Bar which means I have the great pleasure of being a guest bar tender for this week's challenge where the talented team are paying homage to the late great Martin Luther King Jnr and his "Free at Last" speech which I always think of as "I have a Dream".  So you are free at last to make any paper craft project that you want in this week's "Anything Goes" challenge.

I have used this lovely Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis image suitably called "Dreamer" which you can find at Funky Kits here.   She is coloured up almost entirely in ProMarkers for a change. I do neglect my ProMarkers sometimes.  Her wings have Spica glitter pen over the top of the ink and the green flowers have been Stickled.  My frame is a Nestie die and papers are DCWV Whimsy.  They come in a 6.5x4.5 size hence the slightly patchwork background.  The large leaf swirl is the Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lyn and the little flowers - EK Success.   The larger flower and skeleton leaves are Marianne Design and the sentiment which I also thought was very apt is from LOTV.
I want to say a great big THANK YOU to the Raise the Bar Team for inviting me to play along this week.  I am additionally entering my card into the following challenges:
Deep Ocean "B is for..."  Button and blooms, in my case
The Sugar Bowl "Anything goes"
