It's a Orange and Grape Riley Challenge!

 Happy Summer-a-licious, wonder-licious Day!
It's time for a new Riley and Company Challenge ~
use the colors orange and purple!
 I normally associate those colors with Halloween so I had to
think outside the box with this one.

And it's Shark Week
We love shark week in our home
and wait for it each summer to come on.
It's a good week to be a Moose! :)

I used that as my inspiration to create today's card ...
Using Fins Riley and swim the ocean Funnybones,
this is what I came up with!

Since I had both the image and the sentiment on the front,
I left the inside blank with a small decoration to keep it versatile.

Not quite sure what's going on with the editing of the pictures,
crystal clear on the site and then slightly out of focus on my screen
I'll keep working on it!
Meanwhile, we'd love for you to play along in the Riley and Company
bi-weekly challenge.

To play create a card using Riley and Company images.
Once you have created your card/project, link to your card/project to the blog  or if you upload your card/project to another site like Flickr or
Splitcoaststampers,  please include the keyword Riley1415.
I hope your weekend goes "swimmingly!"
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
