Mellow Yellow?

I am not a yellow person - I mean I like custard and don't consider myself cowardly but although I can honestly say I don't actively dislike the colour it was quite a surprise to realise after a quick look in my wardrobe I only possess one item of yellow clothing.......

So it was definitely a challenge for me to make a yellow themed card. I'm not sure if I've completely overdone it here too... maybe all the years of not using it means I've gone completely OTT?!

Have submitted this for Quixotic Challenge which was to ink up an old stamp.. (that was a difficult choice LOL - am beginning to think I could open my own shop with 'bought and never used' stamps), and the Saturday Spotlight challenge was to 'Let in the Sunshine' and Stamp, Scrap and Doodle's theme was 'Spring'..
