Riley's ORANGE Challenge!


Happy October!


There's a new Riley and Company Challenge for the bi-weekly challenge blog and this week our hostess, Joy, challenged us to make a Riley/Sophie card using the color Orange!


Using Popping Pumpkin Riley, I created an orange Fall card with slight accent hues for balance.  I adore this Riley!  It's so festive and fun for this time of year with the changes leaves, crispness to the air, wonderful spices + aromas, and a lot of leaf piles to jump into! I loved the Autumn-ish hues the papers brought out and I left the inside of this card blank for writing a special message. I couldn't resist adding buttons *smile!*
I hope you will take the Riley and Company challenge this week 
and show us your orange creations!  If you upload to a gallery, 
please use the keyword 2012 :)

Bigger Blessings!~
