Valentine card with Cricut Craftroom Basics

Good morning! I wanted to quickly share a card that I made for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge, to create a project using the new online, and free, design software for the Cricut, Craftroom Basics. I still think I love my Gypsy far more, but part of that is because I have slow and imperfect internet, which is definately a drawback to an online based program! Here is what I made:
I used the free digital cartridge, Craftroom Basics, for the shaped card base, and for the heart. The silhouette is from A Child's Year - one of my all time favorite cartridges still! 
I inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen, and pop dotted the silhouette from the background. 
I used a black Sakura glaze pen for the doodling and stitching around the edges. The sentiment is from 40:31 creations, and paper is all from Echo Park's Country Drive 6x6 paper pad. 
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a great day!
