Aleeza's Mickey Mouse and my card

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods... It is rainy season here so it can get quite icky and sticky when it rains...

A friend of mine gave Aleeza this doodle board and here is the Mickey Mouse she drew... She seemed quite happy with her effort and I managed to capture her expressions on camera!

Now to my card - 
I have used a Penny Black stamp called Up and About and coloured it with my water colour pencils. I do think that my colouring is getting better... I really want to learn how to do shading though.

The edges of the images have been sponged with milled lavender.
I have added a bit of glitter to the bouquet that the girl is carrying and also to my handmade flowers. The paper lace has been punched out of an MS border punch. 
I have used this stamp earlier but just seem to never tire of it. And every card that I make with it just sells so quickly. 

Am entering this card in

MIM - Anything goes
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything goes

Will try and do my rounds soon - gotta read to Aleeza now since it is close to her bed time.

See you soon.

Hi Monica,
Tell Aleeza that I think her Mickey is amazing!!! She did a fabulous job.
I love your card too, and your colouring looks great to me. I have problems with shading using Pro Markers. I watched a few techniques on YouTube which I found to be quite helpful. I have some watercolour pencils, so I will have a go with those, too:)
