'Cuddly Buddly" Teddy Bear and Heart Card + a Few Challenges

Hello All!
Wow I have been busy the last week or two. Hubby took some time off to spend with me during my furlough from work and has been keeping me hopping! We just got back from our 28th anniversary vacation to Branson this afternoon.
I finished this card a week or so ago and am just now getting the chance to post it.
I was done with one of "Cuddly Buddly's" newer stamps. It is the adorable "Annie's Heart" stamp.
I used Bazzill Dots, Core'dinations and DCWV Glitter stack. You can purchase all of these cardstock right there @ CuddlyBuddly.com

I stamped Annie several times, water colored her, and cut lots of little pieces out for the 3D look. Then I added lots of colors of Stickles so she really sparkles!

This card fits nicely into several awesome challenges too!
They are:
Raspberry Ribbons Kits and Sketches - Circles and ribbon.
The image and image frame are cut out circles and there are circles in all of the flowers on the DP. I used ribbon with tiny little dot (circles) too! LOL!
Paper Take Weekly - My Favourite Things - anything goes as long as you use a favorite.
I used my favorite new release stamp from "Cuddly Buddly" and my favorite card base...Bazzill Dots, and my favorite embellishment...Stickles.
Creative Card Crew - Ribbons
I use ribbons in most of my cards and this one is no exception! I sure would like to win more! That is the prize for this week over @ CCC too! I am crossing my fingers and toes! ;)

If you came and looked, please be a sweetie and leave a quick note so I will know you were here!

Thanks, and hugs your way!

Hey True, I just commented on your SCS gallery, but wanted to say on your blog how fantastic your cards are. I can't wait to try out the Annie's Heart Stamp I won on your blog, but after seeing yours, I know I can't even come close. But, I'll do my best. In the meantime, I'll enjoy yours. Superb details, coloring, stitching as always!!
