CCBGC #15 and Sketch Saturday #84

Our challenge for the Crafty Critters was to make a card using buttons and it needed to be a girls in....little girls. So as soon as I saw the sketch for Sketch Saturday I knew it would be perfect with our blog group challenge.
I used Leila always measures up from Stamping Bella...not only does she look adorable but they spelled Leila the same way I spell my daughters name so I just had to have her!
I used some random buttons, SU! ribbon, SU! cs, and a glittery brad. The DP is from a DCWV stack...I then colored with my copics.
Please don't be harsh on my coloring...I put the card together on Sunday and decided I would color it Monday after my doctors appointment...not knowing that they were going to decide I needed a cast on my arm instead of just the brace I was wearing which I was able to take off to do my coloring. Needless to say...coloring is a bit of a challenge with this stupid cast on.

Oh...this is sooo cute! I think your coloring is just fine, especially with a cast on girl! Quit being so hard on yourself. At least you can still make cards!!
