Love is in the Air challenge-DT Whimsical Wednesdays

Wow!! Is it Wednesday already?.. LOL  with that said I get to share a little home decor project that I made as our Whimsicial Wednesdays challenge this week was to create a Valentines Day/ Love themed home decor project.. 
I have been spending a lot of time on youtube lately , I started watching videos on how Cricut CraftRoom worked and then just kind of got side tracked and found a cute video on some SVG files, but figured I could create the same style of project using my Cricut and some choice Cartridges.  Yes, I was right..LOL

Here is my project that I created as my DT project Whimsical Wednesdays:

The rosette measures 9" all around, so its a big one.. 
Here is a semi-side view..

and for a few close ups:

and those of you that have been following my posts for the last few years know that I am a honest scrapper, if  I make something that has been inspired by someone else, I always tell you about it.. so, as I mentioned earlier that this was inspired by a video I had seen on youtube, you can go check out the video yourself, by clicking HERE.. this is not my own video is why I am adding the link instead of the whole video.. I hope it inspires you to make one of your own :)
