Glitter Dragonfly Card

I picked up this ENORMOUS dragonfly stamp at CKC.  I saw it, liked it, saw it was $5, yeah, $5 (and there are a few other stamps on the sheet), and it was mine.  I wasn't sure how exactly I'd use it but this is pretty close:
I wasn't quite sure how I was going to finish up the card until I saw the CropStop challenge for including "friend" or "friendship" on a card for World Cardmaking Day.  I tried stamping the F/Friends in blue on blue w/ and w/o Crytal Effects and/or glitter "friends", blue on white, blue on silver and finally silver on blue.  Silver on blue seemed to work the best.  The card still seems to want a little something but I haven't figured out what yet.  I tried a bit of ribbon and cord but they didn't get it done.

Stamps: Dragonfly (Tattered Angels), Friends (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Black (Staz-on) Silver (?)
DSP: Little Yellow Bicycle
Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Misc: Glitter (Martha Stewart), Plastic sheet (packaging from who knows what), Sharpie Pens

CropStop: Stamp your sentiment + Friend/Friendship
