A Splash of Colour

It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and we have a colour challenge for you.  We want you to use mostly black and white and add a splash of one other colour.  I chose yellow but the leaves on the image needed to be coloured so I had to use green but made sure it was a very yellowy green.
You don't have to use a Sugar Creek Hollow image to enter but if you do, make sure you follow the instructions on the sidebar to enter your card twice as you are entitled to a second entry in the random drawing.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
