Good morning everyone.  Well I know that winter is just around the corner, it's currently autumn here in New Zealand and it's usually quite mild but this morning I woke up to 
5 celsius, it's very fresh this morning but it is a beautiful sunny day, here on day 43 in lockdown. 

This month over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2
our sponsor is Sheepski Designs.
I find it so hard to choose an image of Andrea's as I want them all to play with.

Some other shots of my card.  I love the colours and the design paper was very subtle I wanted the image to take the focal point of my card.  I'm very happy with my card and how it turned out.

Sketch #183
