Those Sweet Candy Hearts

I hate trying to get purples to look right.  I just can't get it.  This card has a lavendar base and lavendar paper.  Here they appear much more blue than they are in real life.  
Paper Variety Week 19

Usually I find the papers and color accordingly, for this card I saw this photo of candy and used those colors.  It was pure luck that this paper turned up,  it has all the right colors.  It pays to go through your stash to the bottom of the pile!  You never know what you may turn up.
Here's the deets:
don't forget the inside

stamp - There She Goes "Chemistry"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Tattered Rose
paper - My Favorite Things "Perfect Panel" for image; Studio G lavendar card base; Close To My Heart "Daydream" dp and cs
miscellaneous - copics; charm; ribbon; heart buttons; Sparkle Gems heart bling; Lilac Viva Pearl pen; Spare Parts pin; Creative Memories scalloped corner punch; Stampin' Up slot punch; Cut Ups "Heart Trio" die; Spellbinder's Hearts, Scalloped Hearts, Labels 16 nesties;
