To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.
If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!
It was a perfect challenge this week since I was commissioned to make a canvas for a coworker's future granddaughter. Although I cut and rolled sixty 3.5" flower spirals from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (CTMH exclusive), I only used 38 to complete the heart. By using mostly paper scraps, this was a low cost project. (And I used up a lot of my stash! Winning!)
I love these 3D flowers and they look so pretty shaped into a heart! This is going to look great in the new baby girl's nursery.
I covered the canvas with pieces of green scrap papers. Once dried, I scraped some white gesso all over the top using the side of a plastic credit card. I put a light coat since I wanted the patterned papers to show through, but just tone/even it a bit. I added green acrylic paint, black & white splatter, pieces of an inked doily (this was a happy accident - I wanted to use it as a stencil, but a piece of got stuck to the canvas so I purposely adhered a couple more to give it balance), bubble wrap marks and a script stamp. Once dried, I adhered the flowers into a heart shape using Aleene's Tacky Glue. To finish, I used a fine point BIC pen to sketch around the heart and add some marks.

Art Philosophy (CTMH) I checked the CTMH website and this is no longer offered as part of their catalog. This is a great cartridge and a must own. If you can get your hands on one, I'd highly recommend purchasing.
