Simply distressed

As I was rummaging through a box of papers etc I came across some heart aperture cards and a heart shaped image that I've rescued long ago from a card received. I distressed the embossing and front of the card with fired brick distress ink using a inkylicious blending brush, stuck the heart image inside the card and brushed the ink through the aperture.

This is for The crafty pad 189: inspired by a song: Together Forever - you can listen to this here.
