Go for the GOLD!

Hi there!

It's the time again - the Winter Olympics!
Oh how much I adore these games and watching the various
sports, rooting on our favorites and wishing well to all :)
My daughter and I are always glued to the tv when the Ice Skating
 events come on {probably the only time I even watch tv :)}
We were thrilled to see David and White bring home the
GOLD last night in Ice Dancing - what a breath-taking moment!
Naturally, I channeled that for my card today for the new challenge
at Riley and Company's Challenge blog ~
brought to us this week by DT member, Michele.
She asked us to make a card with a matching envelope.
Easy peasy!



I used the new Figure Skating Sophie for my card today.
I chose gold colored papers for my card backdrop
and used these gorgeous floral papers I've had in my stash -
and ended up with a dark blue card base to pull off the colors in the paper.
You can find the challenge and the DT samples here!
If you link up your cards to a gallery,
please use the keyword Riley0414.  We'd love to
stop by and see your Riley and Company Creation!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings :)
