That time again!! Thursday means the weekly color challenge at the Color Lab!!  Won't you play along this week??  I'm loving these challenges.  And this one, was a challenge!  Partly because I just haven't really been in the mood to stamp since getting home, and it's also more colors than I usually end up working with!!  But I do like them all together!  Here is the inspiration: 

And here is what I came up with!  This is one of the sets I received at SU! Convention last week, Just Believe.  Didn't do my Make-N-Takes there, and haven't touched them yet at home either, but knew I would love this image with this die!  And, I do!!  

Card base is Pumpkin Pie.  Background layer is Crumb Cake.  I stamped the image in Baja Breeze several times and then spritzed over it with Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake & Pumpkin Pie.  The edge was sponged with Pumpkin Pie.  Not as much of it shows as I thought (& hoped-I liked it!)!!   I used my Frame, Oval Scallop die in the Big Shot and cut twice:  once from Night of Navy and once from Crumb Cake.  I ran the outside scallop oval through a second time in the Square Lattice Die.  For the main image, on the center scallop, I first inked all the leaf and stem parts of the image with my Baja Breeze marker.  I then came in with the Not Quite Navy marker and hit the bigger leaves.  The flowers I inked with Pumpkin Pie.  I took my Night of Navy marker and thumped it onto the leaves and stem areas making sure not to hit the flowers.  Gives it a very blended look!  

Lastly, I stamped the foliage/box image in Pumpkin Pie on Crumb Cake, added the friends in Not Quite Navy (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement) and cut it out. The ovals are attached with dimensionals, and the friends was attached to the bottom of the ovals with just Snail adhesive.  

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope that you'll choose to play along!  Find Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post :)
