Vinyl Home Decor Project

I've been wanting to do a monogram with our family name for quite some time now.  I am very pleased with how it came out.  I am entering this project over at Fantabulous Cricut this week.  
Vinyl is so easy!  I did this project and another one (which I'll post in a day or so) in one night!  That was even with two little ones in the room with me!  A pair of scissors and some scrap paper entertained them for quite a while:)  I had it all planned out and the letters welded in my gypsy, so I was able to get right to cutting.

For this project, I used:
8 x 10 canvas
Martha Stewart craft paint
Easel from Michaels
Gypsy Font for the "D" and "Est" and "2002
Accent Essentials for the decorative cut on the bottom
"D" cut at 5 in.
"Est. 2002" cut at 2 in.
Decorative swirl- cut at 3.24 in.
*This was my first time to work with vinyl on a painted canvas surface.  I had a little trouble getting it to stick, and it wanted to bubble up a little.  I thing using a painted wood plaque would be a better option next time.

I'm entering this in the following:
Fantabulous Cricut-ABC's/123's-Use at least 1 letter or number Cricut cut
