A cute bear for the girls on a Friday Sketch

Hello everyone,
Well this is a last minute post for one challenge as I really wanted to submit a card for the Just Cute Bears challenge blog.  I love teddy bears and didn't want to miss this challenge.
So without further ado here is the card I made for this challenge:

I took a Cuddly Buddly freebie image of a bear holding a heart and coloured the image using ordinary pencils and felt pen.  I used pearlescent chalk around the bear image and then used a chalk ink pad in pink to go around the edge of the card.  I layered the image onto some olive green polka dot paper from a Pink Paislee pap called Pop Fashion.  I used two other papers from the same set as the background DP and the DP across the middle. 

Before I stuck down the image I laid two pieces of new Pink Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons across the card and then tied them into bows across opposite corners. 

I added a sentiment stamped in pink chalk ink  and went around the edge of the oval with the same ink and added a pink rose to the top middle of the sentiment.

I used the sketch at Friday Sketchers (above) and flipped it slightly by putting the sentiment on the opposite side (because the ribbon would have obscured it otherwise)
