They Call It Mellow Yellow!

Happy weekend everyone!. 

Well, I've waved off the family as they drive down to Devon for a weeks holiday........and I'm glued to the phone as my sisters donkey is about to foal any minute, and I'm in the hot seat if it goes into labour!Aaaaah!

While I wait, I've made this card

I wrapped some Raffia around some pale yellow card that I had embossed, and laid it off centre on a white base. On 3D pads, I then added a yellow card square and topped it with a smaller white one, onto which I stamped two flowers and sentiment. Next, I stamped three yellow flowers and fussy cut them out, and arranged them with some punched leaves above the sentiment. The finishing touches were the gems in the flower centres and flower heads.

I am entering it in these challenges :
