Here is what I made..

 I started off with stamping small rose and leave from Flowers In Bloom stamp set onto white card stock, masked it off and stamped another 2 roses for both yellow and pink.  I then drawn a curve to make my flower bush scene.  I did the same masking technique with the Rabbit from Peek A Boo Animals stamp set with the Bucket image from Farmers Market stamp set and also the Wheel Barrel and the Carrot from Farmers Market stamp set.  I stamped the Toucan from Flew By mini stamp set and hand-drawn the tree.

I colored all the images with various copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I also stamped the sentiment from Peek A Boo Animals stamp set on vellum and cut it out by using the smallest scallop oval from Fancy Stitched Label Dies.

Here's the closer look

I prepared my card base using Doodlebug - Spring Garden Paper Pad.  I used the Hill from Outdoor Landscape Dies to cut the paper out for decorative edge.  I then adhered the pattern paper to my card base.  I used foam tape on the Toucan and the flower bush for some dimensions and I doubled foam tape on the rabbit to make it popped up more.  For the tree trunk and the wheel barrel I adhered directly to the pattern paper.

Here's the closer look for dimensions.

I also stamped another sentiment from Wishful Thoughs stamp set at the bottom of my card.  I can't bear to see it blank :)

Here's the closer look for the decorative edge and sentiment.

To fishish off my card I decorated a little bit with Melon Drop sequins.  I hope you like my "imagination" garden.. Have a Great Day!
