You Measure Up

Hi! Wow, is it Thursday already? Fall is definitely starting, and yesterday I had to turn on the heat. There's always something about the first time turning on the furnace (besides the smell) that makes it really feel like fall is here.

It's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge. This week's colors are Flamingo, Honey, and Coffee :

We're being sponsored this week by The Alley Way Stamps, so I used the Work It Out set for my card:

Isn't that scale cute? I simply fussy cut the image, paper pieced the outside, and colored the center with Copics. For the rulers, I used an off-white digital image from Echo Park and changed the hue to match the challenge colors. I opted to cut out the rules and fussy cut them. Here's a close-up:

Like the colors? Want to play along? This week, the winner will win a prize from The Alley Way Stamps:

Have a great day!
