This paper is high quality, and the blue green swirls are very abstract, and can be used for lay outs and cards that have nothing to do with the beach.
For me the The antiqued yellow side was not useful because I will be making cards out of the paper. But if you would like to do a beach layout, and find the bathing beauties of the 1920's cute and kitchy, this is a good paper for you.
I love the blue green swirls backed by the antiqued yellow, almost cream color. I will make several attractive cards using this because of it's versitility,
