Julie Nutting Doll House

So yes, I guess I am still a child at heart. I love the Julie Nutting doll stamps and now I was given this beautiful Paper Dolls paper pack for Christmas.
I have had the little case for some time trying to decide what to do with it so I thought the paper teamed up so well with it.
I hope you enjoy my little trip back to childhood :)

I used a Spellbinders die for my background and Spellbinders butterflies and flowers cut form glitter card. Finished with a Sticker store greeting.
