Because You're So Special

Happy Tuesday!
Starting a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown and the theme is to make part of your digi image pop!  That means cutting out and adding dimension to only a portion of the image!  This is a really fun technique, not one that I do often, but I love the effect it can give to a card.
Our fabulous sponsor this week is Pink Cat Studio and they have provided us with a few images to use.  I've chosen to use the Paper Flower Bouquet image and I paper pieced everything on it.  I also went with very spring colored papers for my card.  Here's a better look at the dimension.
I added a single layer of foam tape to the purple flower and a double layer to the orange.  Once everything was adhered down, I went back with some light ShinHan markers to add a little shading to everything.  Finished it all off with some glitter pen (of course :) ) and a sweet circle sentiment from Netty's Cards.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    A Gem of a Challenge #115-Mother's Day/Female Birthday/Special Lady
    Craft Your Passion #206-Mother's Day/For the Ladies
