Mellow Yellow

Hello to all - I'm back after a few days break from crafting as my craft room has to be turned back into a guest bedroom for a while as we have some friends coming across from England to visit.  I had a lot of tidying up to do as I'm not the neatest of crafters and like to use the double bed as an extra storage surface!  So after several days of organising and discovering lost stash, the room now looks like the bedroom it's supposed to be :)
        I did keep a few bits out so I could do a bit of playing until they arrive on Friday - can't put everything away!!
This card was done for the current Copics  'Yellow' challenge over at Colour Me Creative.  I don't often use Tilda as I'm not their biggest fan and so many people out there do such wonderful cards with them that I always feel mine look unfinished!  I'm just not good at piling masses of embellishments on so I just try to keep them reasonably simple.  Anyway, this little one looked ideal for a sunshine card and then I got the song "Mellow Yellow" stuck in my head all the time I was putting this together!



I would also like to enter this into the following -

Here's a close up to leave you with.  I made the rolled flowers which is why they look a bit uneven!  Thanks for stopping by today :)

They call me mellow yellow.....hmmmm LOL Now it's stuck in my head. :-) Girl you nailed the yellow challenge with this card. That's not always a easy shade to color for me but I love what you've done and your flowers aren't uneven. They're perfect! Love this! Hugs!
