Day 5 - Broken Crayons ...

Hi my friends and Happy Friday!

I'm back with a final card from the new stamp release from Riley and Company!
So many of these stamps have just had me rolling!
I hope they have brought some laughter and smiles into your lives, too ♥

My card today is using a stamp from the Inspirations line
called Broken Crayons
it literally took my breath away when I saw this stamp.
The message is so beautiful and one that resonates with many of us,
needing to send a note of cheer or 'chin up' :)
I love how the stamp is slightly distressed, like it's written in actual crayon
yet stamps so crisp and clear!
I paired it with a colorful swap of dsp that was already distressed,
added a 'scribble' of twine and buttons to complete the look.
This stamp will be one of my favorites ♥ 

 Thank you all for stopping by this week to see all the Riley cards :)
 Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a reminder that
you can find this stamp, and all from this release and previously,
here at the shop and our DT Inspiration blog!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  11. I so agree with you on how delightfully uplifting this sentiment is! I love the patterned paper you chose and the SB shape die you chose. Another fabulous card Kelly!

  12. Kelly, this card is AMAZING! Love it!

  13. Kelly, this is a fabulous sentiment to anyone who needs a bit of encouragement during tough times. It looks splendid on the wonky rectangles, and love that you did all the multi-color on the DP - as it certainly reinforced the 'crayon' imagery. Riley has the funniest sentiments, but this one is just very inspiring. TFS & have a great wkend.
