A Yellow 'Bingo' Card

Since the football was on yet again last night, I sat and made a couple of cards, for some challenges that has caught my eye recently.

The lovely Jan over on MSE has set the current challenge, which she has called 'Bingo Lines', and basically she has suggested making a card, using any one of these lines:

Circle; Spots; Glitter
Square; Buttons; Stars
Yellow; Punch; Flowers

I'd been thinking for a while about the line to choose and had decided to go completely out of my comfort zone and use yellow on a card. I thought that I had the ideal design in my head, and the paper to go with it, but when I tried to put everything together, it didn't really go, so after a lot of faffing about with pretty papers, I ended up changing everything, and came up with this for Jan's Challenge. Yes I know I have used the same image again, that I used on my last cards, but I absolutely love it and it can be used for so many occasions:

I have backed the design paper onto some plain yellow card, and matted the coloured image onto some gold gemstone card to give it a bit of sparkle. The punched flowers on each corner were also made using the gemstone card, and some yellow flat backed gems. The gold organiza ribbon has been tied to finish the card off - not sure the photo does it justice, but the ribbon is really sparkly. I haven't added a sentiment as I thought it may spoil the layout of the card, but this will be given to a work colleague whose birthday is in a couple of weeks.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Scatty Jan's Challenge on MSE - bingo lines.
