From the Heart - Stampin 411 Challenge 166

Highlighted below is one of the best stamp sets in the summer mini, Watercolor Trio.  It is beautiful and makes such lovely cards and projects.  I played along with the Stampin 411 Sketch Challenge 166.
Very Vanilla was used as the base card as well as the image.  I layered Blueberry Crisp Designer Series Paper on the card front as well as under the image mat.  I stamped the image with Rich Razzleberry ink, stamping off the image to give it some depth and layered it on Daffodil Delight that had been punched on one edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  The layer of Rich Razzleberry was punched with the same border punch on one edge.  Stampin' Dimensionals brought forward the image and Basic Rhinestones were added for a little dazzle.  I knew I wanted to use the Blueberry Crisp dsp, so I went to the fantastic Color Coach, decided to use Pacific Point as the main color and worked with the "coach" to come up with the perfect colors.  It works every time.   What do you think?
