It is challenge time for Riley and Company!
One more challenge from me for October.
Make something in the "Colors of Autumn."
We are having a beautiful day here in Kansas
and I think this looks appropriate -

This card features the new Popping Pumpkin Riley.
I am still playing with my Cricut Imagine and the ovals are printed
and cut with the Imagine More cartridge and inked with
Tea Dye Distress ink.

Tuesday Challenge for Riley and Company!

Guess what?  It is challenge time for Riley and Company.
And.... I got to choose the challenge this week.  Yahoo!

So bring on the Anniversary or Wedding cards please.
My challenge is to make any kind of Anniversary or Wedding
card.  Just had to choose this because October is a
special month in my family. 
It is a family tradition to get married in October.  Yes my parents,
my Hubbie and I, and my brothers and their wives all chose
October.  My engaged daughter plans on October as well.
No announcement of the year yet.  LOL!

First a very traditional card with the Bride and Groom for
memories sake.  Stamp is Wedding Riley.
Paper is by KaiserKraft.  Rather an unusual choice but
I wanted something dark and rich for fall.
The Spellbinders Fleur de Lis border is great on cards like
these.  The card size is non standard as well. I cut it 5.5 wide
and 6 inches long  so that gave it room for the
pendant Nestibilities.

Next up just for giggles and just for Hubbie.  (We never give
each other serious cards.)  I couldn't resist.  Franken-Riley
and Goth Sophie looked so darn cute together at the
Haunted House I just had to stamp them again.

So a tri shutter card just for grins.

Happy stamping and give this challenge a try!  Just post
your results at Splitcoast Stampers with the keyword
Riley1910.  You can also post a link here in the comments.

I am off to try more card designs. I have tried waterfall cards
and now tri shutter.  Love them both!
