Teddy Friendship card

Another teddy card, this time for a lady who likes bears. I've managed to make one card for two challenges here. Woo Hoo. Hope it passes. The first challenge is from Cupcake Craft Challenges using certain colours, I chose brown + pink. The second challenge is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. The stamp is from PSX and the rest of the items on the card are Stampin' Up. I used my nestabilities and a cuttlebug embossing folder as well.
Purely Pomegranate, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White cardstock. The ribbon is velvet and absolutely gorgeous. I saw an idea on a blog and for the life of me, I can't remember where but the lady had just folded the ribbon into a bow and put a button over the centre. If someone knows which blog I saw this on, please let me know so I can give the appropriate credit. Thanks.
ETA - I found out where, da, on Karen's own card for her Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. Fair dinkum, something is definitely wrong. lol Thanks Karen for the idea.
I used this idea with the velvet ribbon and added flowers from the Pretties kit and coloured by sponging ink onto them. A half back white pearl completed the centre.
I've rambled on a bit, sorry.
Away to get some tea now.
Thanks for looking,
