Quirky Secret Garden part 2

This gorgeous young lady is Ashley, a friend of Unky's who has cancer and Unky is giving half the money from the sales of this image to her friend to fund her chemotherapy, how cool is that!
So I thought  would make my card about breast cancer, and I die cut the ribbon with a Sizzlet die, and added a sentiment using a Unity stamp, it says "Be brave, strong and courageous". 
Our other sponsor is Samaflora and the challenge is Secret Garden featuring flowers.
I set Ashley in a garden, the papers used are Rose Garden by Papermania and the rug is My Mind's Eye paper. I added some Prima blooms, and some Card Craft Card Candi as flower centres. Ashley is coloured with Promarkers, and her hair is coloured with Graph'its and she is fussy cut. Her sunglasses glass are made using Plaid Papier Glass Finish glaze in pink although it doesn't show us very pink. The flower in her hair has a small gold gem centre.
