Sketch Saturday - Sketch #306/A Day for Daisies

Happy Saturday, Everyone!  The second April snowfall we had in MN on Thursday should be but a memory by the end of the weekend.  Our temps are scheduled to be mid 60s.  Hopes of an outdoor Easter egg hunt with my grandkids inspired the colors of this card.

Deb is our sketch designer and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sketch to use with the image from our sponsor, A Day for Daisies.  This little beauty is called Breeze in Spring and was simply divine to work with!  I loved it so much, I want to get back in my craftroom to color another one.  I masked around her to stamp SU's French Script in the background and used a WPlus9 mini flower to add the flowers to her top.  Don't look too closely for my little flub!

ADFD artist, Tammy Thompson generously provided the DT with our choice of images, so stop by the Sketch Saturday blog and take a look at the eye candy the DT gals have in store for you this week.
