Say Yellow & White

Welcome, I hope you are enjoying your weekend, mine is half over already! I slept a bit later than usual and after having breakfast and my diabetes tablets, I got myself organised to do some "housework" The dishes were sitting waiting for me and I did one load of washing. It was overcast with a few grey clouds about but hubby said it was going to be about 28C so I hung them on the line. Our two dogs always want to play ball when I am out there so I hang clothes and kick the ball at the same time!!!
Since our plans to go away for the weekend had fallen through because of Adrian not being able to get around much I decided to go to my usual Saturday afternoon activity, craft at my friend Judy's house. We were all going to be doing some beading but as it was a last minute decision, I didn't have the energy to go searching through my beads for the right ones so I just took some paper embroidery to do. We enjoyed catching up with each other and seeing the different versions of the project that most of the others did.
The card I've made tonight was mad specifically for a challenge and maybe I can find another couple of challenges to put it in too, LOL.
So here it is:
The basecard is Yellow cardstock from stash. a layer of white card and then I cut three panel of DP from Fiskars, Heidi Grace Designs and I think it is called Bouquet Flowers Decor. I used a white heart shaped nestie diecut and went around the edge with a Yellow Copic Marker and then Dark Grey Ink. The sentiment(from Annabelle Stamp set "Flowers With Love") is inked in the same colour. I stamped the little girl (Lil Molly''s Flowers, Annabelle Stamps) and then coloured her with Copic Markers using different shades of Yellow for her clothing. I used a white Jelly Roll pen on a couple of the flowers and also the boots. I used several browns for hair and skin colouring. The flowers were coloured with Jelly Roll Pens. I finished off with a small edge of light blue and then cut the image out and popped both the heart and little girl on with foam dots.
The inside of the card has a layer of white, DP and a white deckled oval diecut which I edged with the yellow Copic Marker and the dark grey inkpad.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
