For my project today, I stamped all of my the images I was using from Spring Things in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers.  Once all my coloring was finished, I cut out both sets of tulips, bunnies, and butterflies to pop up later and then stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges before layering onto scarlett and black linen card stock.  After I was finished layering, I popped up the first layer of cut out images before popping up the second layer on top of those for some added dimension.
Here's a close up of the card from the side.  The final touches was adding a few birds from Scenic Selections and then highlighting the tulips and butterfly with diamond ice stickles.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
