Somebody give me a Totally Gorjuss cuddle!

Hi all!  Can you guess what this week's challenge is over at Totally Gorjuss?  Yes - come on, give us a cuddle!  Include something cuddly in your creation - interpret that as you will!  This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp - I can't believe how much stock they hold!!

Anyway, onto the card!  Well you can't get much cuddlier than a teddy so I just had to use this stamp, didn't I?!  

I confess that I coloured in this lady over a month ago but I put her away because I just couldn't get the papers right with her!  When I saw the challenge I immediately got her out and tried again - and now I'm really pleased how she's turned out!  

Hop on over to the Totally Gorjuss blog to see the other Totally Gorjuss inspiration!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper pack
Stamps: Elizabeth Bell's Beary Big Hugs for Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, Ladybug Crafts Ink sentimental numbers stamp set (you can buy here)
Mediums: Copics and ProMarkers
Accents: BasicGrey brad, ric rac ribbon from stash (inside card)
Tools: Fiskars border punches, MFT rolled rose flower die
