It is a new Challenge Day at CRAFT YOUR PASSION... 
Challenge #125 is "Embossing (Wet or Dry)"

I chose this image - "Chloe" from the Card Mad Fairy - coloring the ruffles seemed like it would be fun!  I chose the Copic colors to match the colors on the DP, added Distress Ink to the edge of the panel, attached with brads to a blue panel.

Next I used two scalloped punches on colored Vellum to layer and mimic the ruffles. My dry embossing was achieved by running the DP, Vellum and the front of the base card thru a Cuttlebug with an Embossing Folder.
You can see the embossing better in this photo to the right:
