Anniversary card

This is the card I made for my husband for our wedding anniversary last week. The brown paper is from my new MME pad Nostalgia and the white paper is from an Echo Park pad A Boys Life. I have inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and tied some brown bakers twin around the paper which I have attached a love charm to.
This gorgeous dragon is from Spesch Stamps I have coloured him with promarkers. I;m really pleased with my colouring this time although it took many attempts to get one that I was happy with as usually I struggle with large areas of red. In the image the dragon is holding a flower but I cut this off and replaced it with a chipboard heart which I coloured and then covered in glossy accents.

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