Nine cards - Nine days

This is my ninth submission into the Link Up For Pink Linking Party. 

I found a three-piece set of Chromatix alcohol markers on clearance at Michael's. I tried them on her skin. They work just as well as the Copics but I don't know how many colors are available. I can add these three to my Copics, Prismacolor, Spectrum Noir, and Promakers! 

I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make this a shaped card. I welded the ribbon from the Stand and Salute cartridge into the card shape. The scalloped oval was cut using a Sizzix die. The roses are also from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The branches were cut with a Martha Stewart punch while the sentiment was cut with a Dienamics pennant die. The large "pink" ribbon was cut from glitter paper and finally I added some bling from my stash.
