Need a Hug? card

I just love this FREEBIE from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I just had to do a card with him!  
I started with a sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges:
Here is what I came up with....
Here's the details:

Image -   Otto the Octopus from Gerda Steiner Designs; I colored him with pencils and added diamond Stickles and pearls to the bubbles
Sentiment - printed on computer
Papers - all scraps from my scrap basket
Extras - scrap of pink ribbon, blue and cream pearls, pink deco hearts, EK success edge punch, and diamond Stickles

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C199 - sketch challenge
Creative Creations Challenges - BINGO!  (sentiment, image, pearls)
Gerda Steiner Designs - Otto the Octopus
Through the Purple Haze Challenges - BINGO! (ribbon, 3 papers, pearls)
Tuesday Throwdown - use your scraps

Hope you are having a wonderful day!  
Marie
