This sweet image from Bugaboo Stamps was definitely fun to color and lends itself easily to a lot of different layouts.  I printed her out three times, colored, fussy cut, sculpted each piece and mounted her with foam tape for dimension.  You can see some of that dimension on the photo (below) of the inside.  In addition to the layers, I simply added ribbon and half black pearls from Hero Arts to balance the composition..
