New Design Team and First Challenge!!!

Hi everyone!
I have some wonderful news, I've been invited to join Crafting By Designs as a DT and of course said: Yes!
Crafting By Designs is a a fun place to share your creativity, chat with your friends, join a challenge or two and try new techniques.
The theme of the challenge I am hosting during this month is:
Create a valentine for that special someone, mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, brother, etc.
for my first one I created metal accents by embossing a piece of tooling aluminum (Maid-รณ-Metal) and then covered two chipboard heart die cuts (Sizzix, Tipsy Hearts). Used some pattina paint (Metallic Art - Gem Crafts) to age the hearts and some bling. Distressed the border of the DP with Ranger Distress Ink (Fired Brick).

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: CFC34 - Create a Clean And Simple project using chipboard at Cas-ual Fridays and Bling it up at Some Odd Girls.
My second valentine is a simple card. Used my Cricut and Plantin SchoolBook cartridge to cut the circles and heart shapes. Added some glitter to the heart for bling and made a tag using the ippity stamp set: Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: RCC34- Anything Goes with Unity Stamps!! at The Ribbon Carousel and Challenge #4 - "Layers, Layers, and More Layers" at Simply Create Too.
