Victorian Ornament...

 The Victorian ornament from the Prickly Pear clear set of stamps calls for a formal and classic layout.  If you look closely at the shadows to the right of the ornament and the panel - you can get a sense of the construction.  The white glossy CS used as base is layered alternately with Basic Grey DP and then a white panel - elevated on foam tape above that are two more panels of DP and white. The ornament is fancy cut, sculpted from the back and mounted on top with foam tape to maintain its' dimension.

The inside can be seen here...
