Robyn's Fetish Wacky Wednesday Freebie!!!

Hello Everyone!!! Welcome to another fantastic Wacky Wednesday Freebie!! Today we had the pleasure of working with the ever adorable Gretchen!!
She is just so CUTE!!!

I was feeling in a "simplistic" mood...which is unusual for me!! But I like to try to force myself to branch out and try different styles as often as I can so I went with clean and basic for this.

I started out with a scrap of MS pink cardstock for my base. My next layer is from a Mat Stack and is primarily chocolate brown with faux cross stitched hearts in a variety of colors.
I then (knowing I wanted to incorporate this sheer, polka dotted, turquoise ribbon - cut a line right in the crease of my card, threaded it through and tied it into a super cute fluffy bow.
I then set to coloring Gretchen. I colored her face, hair, legs, shoes and cutie apron with my Copics. I then ran some polka dotted DP through my printer and paper pieced her DRESS!! Paper Piecing is one of my favorite techniques!!! I love the added dimension it lends to a project.

I matted Gretchen to a scrap of light blue paper and stitched a zig zag in chocolate brown just down the right side of the panel.
I then added a Doodlebug sentiment "Just Plain Happy". Stamped in SU! Purely Pomegranate on a scrap of white cardstock, backed with the same light blue. Lastly, I added a tiny heart puffy sticker - super throwback to my early 1980's sticker collecting days!!
I hope you enjoy my creation!!
