Pretty in Yellow

I have made this card for the Songbird Challenge - Build Me Up Buttercup - yellow must be one of the main colours on your card.  As soon as I saw this challenge I just knew the image that I wanted to use, the only problem was I didn't have it, so I had to buy the CD.

What do you think of the way I have been taking my photographs lately, I never seemed to be able to get them straight, so I have been taking them at a slight angle - you can't see if they are straight or not now!

The Image and the papers are all from Ooh La La Creations All Dressed Up CD, I wanted this CD when I first saw it on Create & Craft but managed to resist.  I eventually bought it directly from Ooh La La and it arrived quicker than it would have from Create & Craft.

The card stock is Bazzill Basics from Craftie-Charlie, the sentiment is from The Crafty Pad and the ribbon was in my stash.  I have inked the edges of the sentiment to match the image.

The inside of my card has been decorated to match the front leaving a blank rectangle with inked edges to write on.

This card is for my niece's daughter - does that make her my grand niece or great niece - I'm not quite sure, anyway I hope she likes it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Songbird Challenge 6 - Build Me A Buttercup
Lollipop Crafts Challenge 92 - Happy Birthday
Sketch N Stash Challenge 99 - Sketch (new stash CD, old stash ribbon and sentiment)
The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 29 - Use a Ribbon
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Don't Worry, Be Happy
The Emerald Faeries Challenge 34 - Anything Goes
The Perfect Sentiment Challenge 53A - Happy Birthday/Happy Anniversary

Thank you for calling today, they say it is going to get cold at the weekend - it doesn't feel particularly warm here at the moment, so I'd better find my woolly socks out!
