Bear wonder

I just couldn't get a good photo of this card in its usual spot, due to it being quite overcast today, so finally put it in front of my window and voila, much better!   This adorable bear is James from Lili of the Valley and is quite irresistible, don't you think (but then, I'm partial to cute teddy bears, you know!).  And, believe it or not, but the cute gingerbread flower centers are actually buttons that I've cut the shanks off the back.
I will be entering this card into the following:
