Looking cute in yellow and green

Evening Folks
Well, what a wet and miserable day it has been here.  And so cold with it too.  If this carries on I will have to get my thermals out lol.  I am a bit late posting tonight so will just get on with it.
I have decided that I need to experiment a bit more with colour.  The challenge over at Just Tracey's at the moment is to use yellow, green and white so I thought I would give it a go.

The image I have used is a Penny Black slapstick stamp and is just so cute.  I coloured with promarkers and cut out using one of my scallop circle dies.  I then layered this onto a lace doily that I coloured lightly with distress ink.  I used the sketch from the Sketch N Stash challenge for the layout.  All the papers are from Papermania and I used some yellow cardstock that I had for the matting and layering.  For embellishments I used three white buttons that I threaded some coloured twine through.  I then added a memory box corner, some flowers from my stash, some little butterflies, ribbon and bow and a sentiment.  I also added some stardust stickles to the flowers for a bit of added sparkle.
I am quite pleased with the way it turned out using a colour scheme that I would not automatically turn to.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch N Stash - use sketch (new stash - die corner, neglected stash - papers)
Stamping Boutique - Anything goes
Penny Black and More - Oh so cute
Just Tracey's - Yellow, green and white
