Altered Heart frame!!

So I went to Michael's and got these cute frames for $1 and I decided to decorate it. This was my first time so I hope it turned out ok. I used 2 cricut cartridges for this.

That's the  back side because I had already glued the paper before taking a picture lol

'
I cut the paper at 6 1/2"x 8 1/2". The paper is Vines and Flowers Rose Colored Glasses Collection by g.c.d. studios. I x acto knifed the heart and then filed the edges and the heart.
I cut the grass at 1 1/2" from Straight from the nest. I had to cut 3 of them to fit the lenght of the frame. The frame its self is 6 1/2x 8 1/2. After I cut it, I embossed it with a flower embossing folder with my Sizzix embossing machine that looks like a purse :) I used my ATG gun to glue it all together.
I also cut the tree from Straight from the nest cricut cart. It's cut at 5 1/2" and the red is embossed with a paisley embossing folder.

I cut the 2 little squirrels at 2" using the Give a Hoot cricut cart. I punched out my own flower instead of doing the optional layer because I didn't want to use the heavy glitter cs on my cricut yet.
 I used pop dots to adhere all the layer to my squirrels and to adhere them to the frame as well.
And here is the finished frame. I hope you guys like it. And one more thing... don't forget to leave a comment on here (there is a link) for a chance to win my first give away :) I will be choosing a winner Feb 14th
