Throwback Thursday "Cricutless Challenge" and Winner!!!

Hello Everyone,

 My Creative Time  has a "cricutless" sketch challenge going on and thought I would join in. Talk about last minute, yikes! This would be a big challenge for me since I love my cricut and I can't imagine making a card or layout without using my cricut. At first I thought, how is this possible!

It actually was not as bad as I thought it would be but I still kept wanting to turn my cricut on, LOL!! It's not one of my favorites, it just didn't want to go together the way I had pictured it in my mind. O'well, I hope you like it:)
 Here is the sketch for us to go on:

I decided to make an Anniversary card since I needed one this week.  My card base is 5 1/4. The base layer I used my Martha Stewart punch set to create the heart shape outer layer. The next layer (polka-dot) is cut at 3 7/8 x 3 7/8. I found this cute heart embellishment from~ the card connection and adhered it to this pretty prima flower. I used my SU heart punch for the little hearts and glittered the edges for a little sparkle. I added some ribbon and a charm to finish it off.

Now, onto the winner for my 4th of July giveaway via random.org
