Happy Fall, Ya'll! :)

Hi there!  It's time for a new Riley and Company bi-weekly challenge, brought to us by our DT member, Laurie.  Here is her super fun themed challenge:

We celebrate the season with a Grape & Wine festival in our town!  
Be inspired by grapes or wine, literally or the colour, a sentiment, etc.

I love Autumn and the wonders of this season upon us! So being inspired by nature and the colors of Fall, I created this Riley card using purple (etc!) 
I can't tell you how much fun, yet challenging, it was to come up with a way to make Wheat Riley into a purple card!
I remembered a recent trip to the lake with my son late one afternoon when the skies were just turning a kaleidoscope of colors in pinks and oranges and yellows and even a hint of orchid ...
Indian Summer colors!!

Here is the front of my card:

And the inside, left blank for now :)

Isn't he cute with his purple overalls!
I'm pretty sure he's about to sing his sweetie, Sophie, a purty lil
tune on his banjo :)

And, of course, we would love for you to play along!
To play create a card using Riley and Company images. 
Once you have created your card/project, post it HERE on the blog and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword RILEY1913. We can't wait to see what you create!

Big hugs,
