I often buy paper that is a bit outside of my comfort zone. I wasn't too sure of this pattern and color combo but in person the colors are so rich and beautiful I won't even have to step out of my comfort zone to use it. I love both sides and may use it for a masculine card.
Rich colors, wonderful contrast, elegant coordinating pattern and solid add to any layout or craft effort. Nice weight, not flimsy.
The picture doesn't do justic to this one--it's beautiful!
