I printed out the digital stamp of the lemon blossoms on Whisper White cardstock and then outlined it with a Sharpie black marker (I only have an ink-jet printer and the ink runs if I don't do this first).  I used Stampin' Write markers to color in the leaves and stamens of the blossoms.  I masked around the lemon and sponged on Daffodil Delight ink and then added a touch of More Mustard ink to add depth.

I inked the sentiment in Garden Green and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Stampin' Write Basic Black marker to outline the sentiment (in hindsight I should have mounted it on a frame of Basic Black cardstock - which is what I did for the main image panel and the background panel.

I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture, popping up the framed main image and also popping up the image and sentiment (so double pop-up for those!).   :)
