Oranges & Lemons....

...say the Bells of St Clement's. There is an interesting story behind this old rhyme, but I'm happy to say that this post features a card with a much happier view of life!  Now I have to admit that oranges and yellows are not colours I would automatically go to when I am choosing colours for cards, but I decided I would try something a bit different and join in the Graph'It Oranges & Lemons Colouring Challenge and ended up being very happy with the result!
