I used digi version from Secret Garden stamp set on my card. I placed the sentiment underneath the bird and printed them out. I also printed a second copy of the bird. Images are colored with Promarkers. Bird and the sentiment are die cut with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles die. Little dash lines between the pierced holes are drawn with regular black pen. Back side of the layer is inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. Second copy of the bird is popped up with foam tape. 

Flower is made with Spellbinders Hydrangea die. Piece of white paper was colored with marker before die cutting little flowers. Flower centers are made with Dimensional Glue and Daisy glitter. For the leaves I used Spellbinders Sprigs die and Sticker Paper. I covered them with Luau Green glitter.

Background is made from white cardstock. I sprinkled some Ultramarine Blue Color Burst to the paper and spritzed it with water. I love this color. To make it little more shimmering I also spritzed it with Perfect Pearls Mist. After everything was dry I dry embossed it, right side down, with an old Cuttlebug embossing folder. I scribbled debossed flowers with black pen.

Edges of the black matting layer was covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Black Suede glitter. It's adhered to the card base with foam tape. 

The next stop on our blog hop is very talented Diane. Enjoy!
