Gussy girl...

Not my usual style - pink and lace and pearls and glitter - LOL!  I think I tend toward a minimalist compared to a lot of styles in our world right now.  In addition to all the above, the background is stamped and dry embossed!  Sheesh!
So let me run down the process: the front of the card was stamped with three different shades of Distress Inks using Hero Arts "Single Starburst"; the front was then run thru a Cuttlebug  with a swirl pattern folder; next a ribbon of lace was layered over a strip of pink cardstock and taped to the front left of the card; finally the Mo Manning image of the Irish lass was stamped, colored with Copics, cut out, sculpted from the back and applied with foam tape for the dimension.  The final embellishments were the single pearl to her costume and glitter to her headband.  (See below)

IMAGES:  The focal image is from Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil too
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; base CS is from my endless stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Lace ribbon, pearl and glitter glue from my personal stash of long ago lost sources!
INKS: Tim Holtz Distress Inks: "Tattered Rose", "Spun Sugar" and "Victorian Velvet"
The focal image is colored with Copics:
