Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #145

A Day for Daisies 

Good morning everyone and welcome to another wonderful 
Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards,
 I looked and commented on so many awesome creations this week.
This week our sponsor is Tammy from 
A Day for Daisies.
I've fallen in love with Tammy's vintage collection of images which makes me think outside the square especially with my colour combinations as these aren't usually colours I would use.      I try to think of the era of the image and what colours would have been available in those years.  I love using bright colours so this really makes me think.
