Trying to get better at colouring

Hello bloggers,

This is a teddy bear card I just made for the heck of it because I wanted to improve my colouring. The stamp is from Paper Craft (a set of them)  which I bought for Aleeza. I had this scrap of blue paper which was actually packaging for lace flowers that I bought a couple of days ago and I stuck it under the stamped white paper. The sentiment is a tape and I used colourful buttons as embellishments. The blue card stock has been embossed and there is a layer of washi tape at the bottom. 
I could have added some colour at the bottom but forgot all about it in the end. 

I will enter this card in: - for men - teddy bear picnic - anything goes

Am off to bed now. Catch you in the morning.

Another fab card Monica - I think your colouring is very good. Thwe ribbon sentiment and the buttons are a nice touch.

Sweet! Your card almost resembles a little boy needing a time out LOL My son thrived on reading books. He actually read our entire set of encyclopedias beginning in 5th grade - reading is such a great gift to give our children. Your coloring is sweet on this little guy, with great shading!
