YNS New Release Blog Hop - Gretchen with Jolly

I am honored to be a guest designer for a YNS Blog Hop Release! It was really fun to work with the image I was given. Without further ado...

Welcome to the March YNS Your Next Stamp Blog Hop Digital Release!

We are so happy to have you join us this month, we have 9 brand new exclusive digital images from Penny and Laurence of Omnia Designs!!

My hop project features the new release "Gretchen with Jolly".

I printed my darling image on MICBC and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

My DP is from the MME Collectable "Remarkable" collection, is Zutterized, and is paired with Stampin' Up CS. I used several dies on my card:

Spellbinders Grand Labels 11
Cheery Lynn Nautical Wheeler Doily
Cheery Lynn Birch Tree
Cheery Lynn Mail Boxes
Cheery Lynn Grass Border
Cheery Lynn Victorian Picket Fence
Marianne Designs Decorative Elegance 
Whimsy Ticket Die

My sentiment is from the Whimsy Friendship Ticket collection. And that finishes my card today.
