Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #2

Happy Tuesday! But oh, I wish it was Friday! I am beat. I had a wonderful weekend with my college roommates and I am so glad they came into town (but I'm tired!) We are the Four Musketeers, the Fantastic Four, the Four Amigos! We have been friends since our freshman year of college and these are the peeps I turn to when I need a boost. They are the sisters I never had (I love these girls, can't you tell?)

Becca is expecting her first baby, and the other girls congregated in town for her baby shower. Here's a photo of us. We can't just take normal pictures, you know ;)
From L to R we have Julie (she lives in Los Angeles), me, Becca and her adorable baby belly, her sister Abbey, and Dina (she lives in Virginia). I miss them already.

But that's not why you're here! You're here to see the card I made for Dawn's second Raspberry Suite Color Challenge!
 More fabulous colors to work with. Here's my card:

I used Spring Moss, Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate and SS White cardstock. Ovals were cut using the plain and scalloped large oval nestabilities. The stamps are from Pine's Beyond Basic Borders set - I stamped the branch image twice and cut out just the leaves, adhering them to the card with foam tape. Added some adhesive pearls and sponging for a finishing touch. The finished size is 4 1/2 inches square. More details are in my recipe below.

What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
