Happy colours

I was invited to create a 4" by 5 1/2" collage card for a fellow altered artist. I had no idea what to make - we were not given any theme - only the size was required - so it can fit in one of these 7gypsies carousels. I gravitated toward happy bright spring colours, tearing strips and gluing them to a large card covered with dictionary paper. Then i added some cut out daisies. Then some vintage cotton trim with yellow stitching. The little red heads were actually an after thought! i decided the card would be more interesting with some people on it. I have no idea who they are, they came in a lot of vintage photos i bought on ebay. Finally i added some ribbons and eyelash yarn to sprout out of the top. I hope it makes Robin smile!
