You Always Measure Up!

I made this card using the CPS sketch with is sponsored by Stamping Bella this week. It would be fabulous if you play along too! I flipped the sketch on it's side to work with my image.
Be sure to link your project over on the CPS blog if you play along.  :)
Leila Always Measures Up is part of the adorable Green Bean Baby Line from Stamping Bella...isn't she so sweet!!! I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper and coloured her with copics.
I used kraft cardstock to layer and compliment the fun floral paper from my October Afternoon Report Card 8x8 pad. The alphabet strip is also from the same paper pack and I thought it was perfect for this image. The sentiment is included with the Leila image and I know it doesn't exactly follow the sketch but I think it still works. I found the perfect cream flower button in my stash...score!
This week's Bellarific Friday Challenge is a monochromatic colour challenge. You decide which colour to use then create a monochromatic look. I'm working on my card today and I'd love to see your card in the Friday roundup on Bloggabella so don't forget to email it to Em by Thursday evening.

Thanks for stopping by!
