Poinsettia Bear

Happy April, everyone!  I can't believe it is hear already.  AND it's Friday so another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long has gone live.  The challenge is: use lots of layers.  Easy right?  The sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and I got to use this adorable image "Poinsettia Bear".  Isn't he cute?
 Now, lots of layers seems pretty straight forward, right?  But I'm going to show you how I used layers 3 different ways.  The first is obvious: I used lots of layers of papers.  The second, maybe obvious too: my poinsettia has 3 different layers of petals.  And the third is in my image.  You can see in the next photo that I used pop dots to pop up several layers on the image.  I printed the image out 4 times and used different parts of them to add dimension.  I did manage to use a piece from my bits and pieces stash: that gold star border.
Now it's time to head on over to the CSAYL blog for all the details and to see how the other designers added layers to their projects.  Then link up your project, I can't wait to see how you interpret this challenge.
