I printed the pot area twice on blue patterned paper, then shaded with a Copic and layered using scrap cardstock to pop it up. The rest was colored with Copics and I added some Stardust glitter pen to the open flowers. I did a LOT of paper tole to give the image tons of dimension using a combination of cardstock punches and foam tape to pop up the parts.
Because I wanted to keep the focus on the image, I kept the card base really simple. I added a scalloped mat and a bit of patterned paper punched with a Martha Stewart border punch and embellished with half pearls. I also free handed the little border (it looks totally hand drawn, but I think it's fun!) and stamped a tiny sentiment.
Here's a close shot to show some of the sparkle:
Unfortunately, because of all the shaping, it was impossible to get a really good shot of all the glitter!
And here you can see all the layers and shaping of the pieces for realism:
