The inspiration for this cute card came from a team challenge. Each week we're giving a specific challenge and this challenge was about color.

I chose to create my project featuring the Lovely Friends Bundle 
and the Colorful Seasons Stamp set.

Stamping & Die Cutting:
Stamp the sentiment with tempting turquoise ink pad using the colorful season stamp set.  Stamp two flowers with pumpkin pie ink pad using the Lovely Friends stamp set and then die cut images with lovely laurels flower thinlit die.
