Riley, you're a star!

Hi friends!  I have three posts for you to view today!  First up, I have a card I made for my daughter's friend :)  They became fast friends in a chorus class in Middle School and luckily ended up at the same High School.  He shared with her last week that he is moving their Senior year and she wanted something to remind him that he'll always be a shining star!

For my card design, I followed the new bi-weekly challenge that Riley and Company has this week - 3 stars, 2 buttons, 1 ribbon.  This week, I used Hollywood Star Riley and paired it with some festive papers from Basic Grey.  I made the 3 stars using a star punch, added light yellow buttons and some twine for the ribbon and tada! This card really bounces off the paper as it's all lifted up on 3D dots.   I usually decorate the inside of the card as well but I'm sure a teenage boy won't mind too much, lol!

Be sure to upload your cards to the Riley and Company blog, too!  We'd love to see what you create!  If you use a gallery like SCS, please use the keyword1012.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can stop by for the next two posts! :)

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
