Daisy Chain

I've decided to try to brighten up my colour schemes with some summery colours, and chosen a bright orange, which is really out of my comfort zone (being effectively blue, purple, pink and brown!!).  I bought some beautiful ribbons from Sew Sweet, and some pretty blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts to try to encourage me to use brighter colours. Here is the result ...
