The color is just as pictured. It's got that nice canvas texture, a nice shimmer. It dresses up any page or a card you may be making. I don't feel it's heavy weight enough to stand as it's own as a card, but some people may use it for that purpose.
This paper color will not work for the particular project that I was hoping it would work with. It's very nice paper, I'll eventually use it in another project.
Love all colors in the Bazzill Bling Line
