Mellow yellow

Hi all,
Well, it's Friday.  Martha and I went to singing tots this morning, a group for little ones to sing nursery rhymes, play music and dance.  She loves singing and dancing and is starting to join in (it's only her second time of going). I keep meaning to go along, as I used to do it with Daisy and she loved it, but we always seem to be doing something else.
Here is a card I made when I had my crafty, inky Tuesday. This is rather yellow, a colour I don't use and awful lot in my crafting.  I have left it quite simple as I wanted the image to be the star.  It's Poppy background by Hero Arts, which I have had for about a year, but this is the first time I have inked it up.  I stamped the image with TH mustard seed distress ink.  I then added gold holographic card, corrugated card, ribbon and some gems.
Have a lovely weekend.
I would like to enter this into the following:
Moving along with the times - garden or flowers
Paperplay Challenge - monochrome and ribbon
