Purple is one of my favorite colors, so to say this shade is one of my all-time faves is really saying something. It is a little richer color than a pastel, and it is just gorgeous.
I am on a real polka-dot kick, so I have bought quite a few lately, and this one did not disappoint. It is a very beautiful shade that coordinates well w/the Caribbean (green) in this series.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I do not like the texture of the paper. It doesn't "feel" good in my hands, and papercrafting is a *hand*craft, after all.
