Bear hugs and kisses

It wasn't hard to choose my all-time favorite Elisabeth Bell image (not that she doesn't have lots more cute ones), since teddy bears are so adorable, and so is this girl -- the image is titled "Pati's Kisses".   I know I've colored up this image a number of times now, and never get tired of it.  I've used a set of oval die cuts for framing her in, and a filigree die cut for my foliage.   I put brads in a couple of the flowers, attached a bow and then glued a cute gingham heart to the center.  The little pink bear is an embellishment I had in my stash, and can't remember just where I found it.  And, the bottom "hugs and kisses" ribbon was in my valentine stash.
I have entered the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - buttons or brads
Craft-Dee Bowz - AG w/handmade bow
Crafty Catz - AG
Crafty Friends - for a child
Creatalicious - AG/optional lots of green
