And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team! This prize will be given if there are 10 entries or more. 

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.

For my project today I made a pretty Fall card using the Tablescapes Fall and Winter Cricut Cartridge, which was the Free Cut Of The Week last week. For some reason I had never before figured out how to access the free cartridge! So unless I came across it in my searches or saw an email and then remembered to look for it, I just never used it. It's so easy, so just in case you aren't aware of how to access it easily in Design Space here are the instructions: 1) Open Design Space, and open a new project. 2) Click Insert Image. 3) On the top right of the screen click 'Categories' and there will be the Free This Week option! 

I used the pretty Accent Flourish cut behind my Bugaboo Stamps digital image Autumn Critters, which I coloured in with coloured pencils before popping up with foam dots to add some dimension. The lovely fall paper is an old paper pack by imaginisce - I love the colours in it!

I was quite excited to cut these pretty leaves and feathers and really liked how the cuts in the centers looked darker after I shaded them with Distress Inks. I grabbed my Tim Holtz Mica Sprays and spritzed the three different colours on the diecuts. I love the sparkly mist these sprays add - and I love how the mica spray reacts with the inks!

I used a circle Hello stamp and punched it out with 1" circle punch, adding some Distress Inks around the edge. Some white, clear and sparkle gel pens add details to the sentiment and stamped image. Lastly, I added some beautiful sequins from the Autumn Joy Sequin Mix from SpiegelMom Scraps. 

Inside, I used another diecut leaf layered over a white insert, ready for whatever sentiment is needed!
