MAWTT Challenge - Punch (or die-cut) it out!!

It's my second contribution for Moving Along With The Times and our new challenge is to

I love my "Leaves" Spellbinders dies. There are very different leaves in it and can be quite versatile when you start playing around with them.

Our very generous sponsor is:

It was really hard to pick an image to play with, but this one popped! Now it's getting hard to choose which one to give my little girl for her 6th birthday!
I DOUBLE paper-pieced her skirt. There is a full bottom layer and then I added a second layer on top with only the "top" skirt cut out and popped up with 3d foam. It's not too clear on the photo but I added some Glossy Accents (Ranger) on the ballerina slippers.

Colored using Spectrum Noir.

So come on over and play with us at MAWTT!
