A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon ladies, hope you are all looking forward to a relaxing weekend, mine is going to be crafting all the way as its hubbys volunteering weekend when he goes to play trains, he does enjoy it so I dont mind really.
Anyway todays card has been created for several challenges, but Ive basically used the sketch from Bev from the Lili of the Valleys challenge this week to create the card and then discovered it also covers sevaral other challenges as well. Anyway this is a gorgeous little image of a young bear with his parcels from LOV and Ive coloured him with my copic pens and then covered his hats fluffy edges with glitter, then cut him out with the rectangle dies from Nestabilities and the mount is one of their deckled edged one, the sentiment is another of the LOV stamps and this has been cut out with one of the tag dies from Spellbinders.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of red card and then on top Ive used three papers from the Papermania's Festival Frolics paper/card pack, the first paper is a all over white one with parcels on and the second and third papers are firstly a xmas tree design and the secondly another of the parcel designs, these have both been cut in strips and then both edges have been punched with the Martha Stewart Parcel Border punch, and then layered on top of one another across the middle.
I then wrapped a organza red ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount, on top of this I have positioned my mounted image and the sentiment at the top on the right a small strip at the bottom as the sketch requires. I then popped two red heart buttons at the top on the right and three red pearls down the left hand side at the top and at the bottom on the right. I also created a bow with the same ribbon and this was stuck on top of the piece in the middle and to finish of Ive created a flower spray with some poinsetta's and some punched out fern leaves which were attached with some silicone glue on the right hand side, after which Ive popped some stickles on the petals.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
