Diva Coffee Break Challenge #154

Welcome, everyone!  Today's challenge is a color challenge:


Well, this card gave me fits all the way! First, I realized I used the wrong color of blue.....AFTER I had finished the card, photographed it and set up my blog post.  SO....back to the drawing board.  Then, photographing the second one....I just could not get the colors true!   So just bear with me if it's not the best!  I think I am still recovering from my Stampin' Around Philly weekend! 

For my simple little card today I used the set Always:


The heart and little flowers have been stamped in Bordering Blue craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder; I also shaded the heart a little with some pastels.    I have also stamped the berry in Real Red around the edge of the circle, but you can barely see it here.  My sketch is  from  Everything But the Kitchen Sink:
