The picture makes it look like the papers are purple, when in fact they're PINK! I was so excited that finally there's a Valentines paper that didn't involve pink or red, and yet here, among elegant black, creme, and white, is yucky pink instead of purple. Very disappointed upon having this in my hands, and considering the cost of the stack I'm very bummed out right now.
The dark colors and elegant designs make this paper perfect for any black tie affair including weddings, proms, etc. I also find this paper works well with Halloween or Gothic layouts. Many of the pages have shine to them while others are matte, which works great for combining the pages or alone. There are a few solid pieces with an old paper feel to them that work great as a blank canvas.
I am very happy with this stack of paper. It has a nice weight to it and I love the shine of the foil. The only thing is the really shiny papers scratch easily revealing white underneath. Minor problem, just be careful when handling them and I still am giving 5 stars because it is a really nice stack and the papers all work so well together.
