The background picture I got from images found on the internet when looking for something "Springy"
The picket fence is a picture that was part of Goosebeary patch's weekly e-mail I receive. Copy and paste it and printed 3 images, cut it out and layered it so that it look like the gate is standing open and the hat looks more 3-d because of the layering here as well.
Dry-embossing on the 3-d butterflies.
