Inspiration Friday - La La Land GDT

Good morning peeps,
I really don't know what I'm doing today! I started writing my post and for some bizarre reason hit publish after only adding the card pic's and my usual layout headings in my post!!! Nothing a couple of matchsticks and a gallon of black coffee can't cure I hope lol.

Today is Inspiration Friday at
& the challenge this week is

This one almost had me running to hills as soon as I saw the theme as I just don't do yellow! I love custard, bananas, the sun, cheese, Daffodils and even SpongeBob SquarePants, but me using yellow on cards, nooooooooo. 
I blame my friend Ali as she drove me insane with all her yellow when we started crafting, she bought bright yellow flowers, ribbons, brads etc, basically anything she could get her hands on that was yellow, and I lost count of the times I yanked yellow ribbon or flowers out of her hand to stop her ruining her card with them as it just didn't go, so it seems that woman's scarred me for life as I tried making a yellow card once before and hated it as I just get flashbacks to Ali & all that yellow lol. 
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Prima & Basic Grey
Flowers - Wild Orchid & The Works
Seam Binding & bling - The Ribbon Girl
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Sentiment - Magnolia
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, E93, hair - E55, E53, E30, Panda & hat - N7, N5, N3, N1, N0 / RV52, RV000, clothes & boots - Y26, Y23, Y21 / W1, W0 / C5, C3, C1, C00, belt - YR24, YR21, YR20
The butterfly is coloured with a mix of all the above colours.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crop Stop - flowers, dots & bling, Delightful Challenges - punches & dies, Ruby's Rainbow - butterflies, Papertake - spots & stripes, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamp & Create - stitching, Tammy's Scrappin' Corner - add some flowers, Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes
That's me done for today peeps, they'll be no more yellow from me for as long as possible lol.
Have a lovely weekend & thanks for stopping by

  34. You make me laugh so sometimes, Mandy! I'm not really a yellow person when it comes to crafting either but I must admit that this card is just lovely! I think the very pale shade of yellow used added with the grey is a perfect combination and I am ALMOST ready to try it myself just to see if I can pull it off as well as you did! Bully for you, girl!
