Weekly Challenge #2: THINK PINK! "Fight Like A Girl"

Emily K. #2583

Created this for the weekly cricut circle blog challenge. This week is Think Pink. We were to use at least three of the following in our projects: Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter, and Jewels. I used flourishes corners, glitter paper along with glitter glue, ruffled ribbon for the skirt, pink of course and jewels. I had such a great time making this. It really brings out the girl-attitude for those fighting and bringing awareness to breast cancer. The girl from the Rock Princess cart was the perfect fit for my idea but I had to figure out boxing gloves for her. So I search for boxing gloves on my cricut carts and found santa's gloves which are similar. I used bread ties to create the look of the laced up gloves.
Enjoy! Thanks for taking a look!
