H2H - Sapphire Poinsettia

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

If you own a Cricut machine - or can use someone else's machine - this challenge is for you! It's all about the Cricut this week at Heart 2 Heart. 
Use your Cricut to create something - anything - for this challenge.

I love the Flower Market cartridge as it has so many flowers that can be changed and manipulated. I chose a poinsettia and by ungrouping the pieces and then copying and pasting the ones I wanted, I was able to create this beautiful poinsettia for my card. There are SO many possibilities with the Cricut - and now, Close To My Heart has brought back all of the retired cartridges again! 
I am THRILLED! I use images from those cartridges so often - it's great that they are back.

So - with some paper from the Every Little Thing paper pack, Sapphire cardstock (both front and back for the lighter colour on the reverse) and some Silver Glitter Paper, aside from shaping the flower, this card came together quickly. The pattern is from Make It From Your Heart - Vol. 4. I embossed the sentiment and used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the poinsettia petals. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your Cricut project! You have until the end of September to link up with this or any of the other September challenges. 
We can't wait to see what you create!
