Riley's OFF THE EDGE! :)

Woohoo, Happy Tuesday!
Lucky, lucky me! Today is my turn to post the challenge on the
I decided to think really outside the box
and throw down a "Off the Edge" (of the card!) challenge.
So I inked up one of my very favorite, love him so much, bestest Rileys EVAH -
I colored him, the background sky and basket w/ my prismas
and paper-pieced the balloon w/ designer paper.
I also decided to be a bit bolder and make my own 'mountains' and
cut out a few circular patterns with my nestabilities and adhered those down -
ta-da! Instant mountains! :)
And of course I had to decorate the inside of my card!
I used the uber fabulous FunnyBones sentiment, also from Riley and Company,
as this is one of my VERY favorite quotes of all times.
I used it for my daughter's graduation 2 years ago
and it just speaks volumes while being light-hearted and whimsical!
Time to get *SUPER* excited!!
We are about to have a brand new stamp release!
Stay tuned - there will be a hop, lots of DT inspiration,
and a chance to win!
The sneak peeks begin on September 21st ♥
And, if you'd like to play along, and we'd love it if you did! ♥,
hop on over to the challenge blog or gallery of your choice.
Please use the keyword Riley1914 so we can find your card/project.
That's it for me -- have a best, blessed day!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings
