I have been searching for sheep themed products for an extended family trip in which each of the branches brought its own stuffed toy sheep along. This paper will work so well in that album I think. It is single sided patterned paper; not a cardstock. It has a dark teal background which seems to have some sort of tone on tone geometric pattern going through it. That is subtle though because there the appearance of brush marks in darker teal over that. The sheep also have brush stroke marks on them in pinks, blues, grays, and spearfish yellow. The black sheep has described by another reviewer as not being as cute. He doesn't' have round eyes and instead has two different sized half circles for eyes and bright orange ears. I too might cover that one up or alter it.
