A Bear for Mom

I treated myself last weekend to 2 of the Lili of the Valley stamps. I was going to use the bear for the Crafty Catz Charming Bear challenge, but ran out of time. However, their new challenge still suits this card so it hasn't been completely wasted.
I coloured the bear using Promarkers and the papers are both from Pink Petticoat. I stamped and embossed the flourish on the Papaya plain paper as the LOTV sketch has a flourish but I have nothing suitable to use.

I used the blue ribbon from my stash to pull some of the blue from the image but I think it's a bit strong.

I am entering this card into 3 challenges.
Challenge 1. SCSC - Mom
Challenge 2. LOTV - Sketch
Challenge 3. Crafty Catz - Bows and Fancy Edges

This card will probably end up being my MIL's Mother's Day card.
