Julie Nutting Doll Bonus Challenge

As a bonus challenge at Mema's Crafts, we were asked to paper piece a Julie Nutting doll.  The only requirements were to paper piece the doll.  I have done this many times, which if you go back and see my past posts, and there will be future ones, I am pretty familiar with paper piecing.  I love to paper piece the dolls and wouldn't think to do them any other way.
Here is the doll "Betty" I was given to work with.  (I was excited to receive her because I didn't have her.)

I used her as the embellishment for a gift bag that I can use to give a gift for a friend.  I used my favorite paper line, My Mind's Eye- Lost and Found for her dress.  I used some Michael's paper for the background, lace, paper flowers, pearls and Natural Journey Twine to finish off the bag.
Here is a close up picture of just the doll.
