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!

For my Valentine project I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge - one of the first ones I ever got! - to create this cute Elephant Valentine for one of my daughters. I love making Valentines; it's something about the pretty reds and pinks mixed together and all the wonderful hearts and messages of love... <3 This little elephant looks so sweet delivering a little Valentine! It makes me remember it's worth looking through those older cartridges to find some fun cuts!

I sponged around my cuts with Distress Inks and added some white gel pen and Stickles for accents.

I absolutely love this Black and Ivory Love Script Reverse paper from Canvas Corp! I used Distress Inks in red and pink to sponge over the ivory coloured love sentiment - adding a lovely ombre effect!

Inside, I used this pretty sentiment from a Lawn Fawn stamp set and added a couple hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what all the other Design Team members have come up with, and enter your own Valentine project for a chance to win a wonderful prize from our awesome sponsor D.L. Art!
