Cricut Valentine's Day rose heart card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Valentine's Day rose heart card
Today, I have a Valentine themed card that I made using the Valentine's Day cartridge.  This card was made for this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge which called for a project made using Cricut word art. I liked this challenge because I do not often use word art. 

After I added the focal point of the card it really needed something more. I stared at the card for a while and tried to think of the perfect embellishment. Then, I remembered the beautiful roses that are on the Heart Strings compliments sticker set. These roses completely transformed this card! I absolutely love it!

If you have an Explore, here is the file: Cricut Valentine's Day rose heart card

If you are sans Explore, here are the cut sizes: 
Heart - 3.25"
Word Art - 2.25"

Like the Valentine heart card w/ banner of word art. Is the Valentine Cricut cartridge a new cartridge? I have an older one w/ similar cartridge name but not sure if same or not.
I had to type 3 times to get the reCapthcha robot thingie to work.

What a beautiful card, Melanie. I love the Happy Valentine's Day cut and how it pops due to the colors you used. I also love that you embossed the card with white hearts. And you are right, the roses were the perfect touch to finish you wonderful Valentine!

When I designed that word art I had intended for it to be placed on a heart just as you have it here! We ended up separating it because we felt it worked better that way for the cartridge. I'm tickled that you saw that shape and somehow understood the way I imagined it should be used. :-)
