Mellow Yellow at Pixie Cottage

It's time for another challenge at The Pixie Cottage. The week's challenge is "Mellow Yellow".  As always, there are two parts to the challenge...a great sketch and/or the theme.  You can do either or both.  This week I again chose to go with the theme, and again I used this adorable Hannah on Bench stamp available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  I just love this image.  I colored her with Copics, cut/embossed the image with Spellbinders Labels Small.  I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness.  The background DP is HOTP, scraps from my stash.  The upper portion was embossed with a new folder from The Paper Studio.  Added some yellow Stickles and a few flowers and all finished with this cutie.
