My First Paper Nest Dolls Card - I absolutely ADORE these stamps!

Hi Everyone,

While my friend Sedara was visiting I had a chance to make a bunch of new cards. This one here is one of my three favorites and the first one I will be sharing with all of you. This is my very first Paper Nest Dolls colored image. I am completely in love and I cannot wait for my second order of them to arrive. I had fun with a special fold card from the Silhouette America website and totally enjoyed every aspect of creating this beauty.

 The card is made using Wishing Well Elle Stamp by the Paper Nest Dolls. I colored her with Copic markers and fussy cut her out. The card base and grass were cut using my Silhouette Cameo cut files #39775 Center panel step card by Lori Whitlock and #1075 Grass.
Here is a closer look at the coloring. This stamp was so much fun!

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
