Ink Blending for a Valentine

I do love emboss resist & thought Impression Obsession Heart Flourish stamp (D2145) would be a good one to use that way for the IO Love is in the Air challenge.  
I white embossed it in opposite corners & then blended Distress Inks picked raspberry & abandoned coral.  I used just the top row of the IO sentiment, Valentine Wishes (D5541), stamping in Brilliance Starlite Black a couple times with the Mini MISTI. Decided against embellishments except for a bit of Stickles. The edges of the card front were inked with Starlite Black--a gorgeous, shimmery gray.  I'm also entering CropStop. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
