I'm playing Tic-Tac-Toe along with Heart 2 Heart Challenges :)

I've used the middle row across for my card 
(stamping, ribbon, distressing):

After stamping the heart, I used the CTMH Blending Pen to blend the colour (as I wasn't completely satisfied with the Martha Stewart stamp that I used).  The 'XOXO' and the black arrow from the new CTMH January SOTM were both heat embossed.  I ended up cutting the arrow in half in order to extend it behind the heart. The doily and the small piece of matching trim are both from the Simple Memories stamp set. For finishing touches, I added pink and white liquid pearls and a few sequins.

Have a great day :)

Supplies Used:
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Kraft; Martha Stewart patterned
Ink: CTMH Blush
Stamps: CTMH Simple Memories,This Moment; Martha Stewart valentine set
Other: CTMH Blending Pen; Cuttlebug; Goose Bumpz embossing folder; Versamark; Stampendous Black embossing powder; White Opal and Petal Pink Liquid Pearls; Verve sequins; ribbon from stash

Something Old Something New

I finally got a chance to create my first card of 2015.  
I'm playing along with H2H Challenges for the first time :o)  The challenge's theme is "old is new", so I've used my brand new CTMH January SOTM and searched deep within my stash and found an old button as well as a small piece of waxy flax!  

I'm also playing along with Freshly Made Sketches 

Here's my card:

I fringed and glittered the feather on the arrow for added interest:

The inside:
