Dolls House, Completed!

This has been by far the most ambitious craft project I've undertaken.  It's taken a few months, chipping away at it here and there, but I'm finally done with it!  And I'm so excited to share it with you all! 
Won't you join me on a little tour?
 The shingled roof, each shingle inked and attached individually by some crazy lady...
 If you look closely, you just might see a little kitty peeking out the bay window!
And another little kitty pouncing on a flower on the little tiled front porch.
Home sweet home... 
I love the colours of the English Rose Collection - they worked perfectly with the romantic feel of the house.  All the roof is shingled in "Thelma" paper, while the walls are wallpapered in the soft tones of "Lillian".  The windows and doors are cut from "Thelma", and the frames are from the reverse of "Estelle".  The tiles on the front porch were punched out of scraps of "Thelma", and coated in glossy accents to give it more of a tiled feel.  Planter boxes were created from bazzill cardstock, with a few antique copper brads for good measure.  The roses in the planter boxes, as well as the ferns are from Green Tara, while the Polystyrene Posies sprays are Kaisercraft. 
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
