We've had a nice relaxing weekend so far, hope you have too! My friend's daughter came over and spent the day with us and we took her out for sushi for lunch and then to Hobby Lobby. We spent most of the rest of the day coloring and sculpting things with clay. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Over the past few weeks I have been trying to play with some new color combinations and using colors that I don't use a lot. I saw the Design Team Challenge on the new Riley and Company Blog and since it was a monochromatic challenge, I thought this would be perfect for me to play along with. If you've read my blog at all you know how much I love this little moose and this is one of my newest ones. I also like the color purple, but I have a hard time matching shades of it for a project. I normally like it if the purple is an accent color but I decided to give a purple monochromatic card a whirl. I was happy with the way it turned out and hope you like it too. After stamping Riley, I colored him with with Copic markers. I found the paper I wanted to use in a stack from DCWV and then matched some purple card stock from my stash. I punched out three small circles in the light purple and then three more with the darker shade and then arranged them in the corner. The panel with Riley is attached with foam dots. To finish the cards, I added some purple brads.
