Hello Card Using Art By Miran "Talkative Tracy" and Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.   I know the weather has been colder in some areas; but we were very warm here the past two days; during the day.  At night; it gets a little cooler.   

I finally finished my Art By Miran "Talkative Tracy" Progressive Facebook Challenge card today.  It is such a sweet image.  I had a fun coloring her and finding paper for her. You still have plenty of time to purchase this image for a discounted price by clicking here.  She is listed as "Reserved Image".

My biggest challenge is finding paper to go with my ideas for the card.  Does anyone else have that challenge?  Once I figure out the paper; I can select the Copic colors to match and then lay out the pattern to make sure I have enough colors of matching paper.  That is the hardest part; selecting the paper and finding papers to match in what I have selected.  Most of the time I use CTMH; which has several options to match; but my stash seldom seems to have matching papers in the paper pad I am selecting.  

Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge
Ribbon and most of paper is a dark purple; but it looks dark blue in picture.  
I just can't get the colors to look right in my pictures.
