FTTC52B Betty's "Cut it out and Pop it Up" challenge

I am doing a sample for Betty's "cut it out and "pop it up" challenge(FTTC52B)! Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along!
I stamped the Flourishes calendar 1 daffodil image twice on wc paper and embossed with clear ep. I colored the images with Tombows and then cut out all the flowers and popped them up on the other stamped image. I added a few stickles to the centers for some sparkle and some piercing and torn edges for interest, inking the yellow panel with daffodil ink. It's done on a base of Ocean Tides dp and layered with scraps of hunter green and pale yellow. The sentiment was created using the word window and modern label punches. The ribbon was from my stash.
Thanks for this great challenge Betty, and thanks for stopping by!

First thing I did was click to see the scrumptious details and STICKLE-work...! {*Sigh!*} Your eye for detail and precision and color is impeccable! GORGEOUS, inspiration! That's what I'm talkin' about! :o)

Pretty stamp to use for this pop up challenge. I like that you used Tombow pens too -- I'm inspired to use mine. Seems everybody is using Copic and I need to use more of what I already have! ;)

I love how you colored your daffodils and tore your paper. Your piercing and ribbon add a wonderful touch and I love what you did with the sentiment, I have those punches but never thought to use them together. Very Beautiful card.
