Stamp sentiment in black on a piece of matching decorative paper, die cut with ovals and die cut an oval foam piece to pop it up. Edge ovals with Rose Madder. Stamp, sponge and die cut the Cherry Blossoms using Rose Madder, stamp leaves with Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green and die cut. Run them through the shaping mold and put flowers together in sets of 2. Pierce centers and thread stamen through the middle of each flower. Use Prills for the tiniest flowers. Add glitter to all the flowers (stamped and 3D). Glue birds on branch and 2 leafy branches around the top of the box and start adding flowers. Tuck the birdhouse in on the right side and the bench on the left side. Pop the flower pots and bunnies up. Add other animals and flowers to divider tabs at the bottom to make the shadow box look more 3D, having levels to the scene. Puff birds and add them to the bench and birdhouse. After everything is finished, seal up the back of box and add a piece of decorative paper or cardstock to cover the back to make it have a more "finished" look.
