here is the web site here to have a look at the selection. 5 of them are double sided and the other 5 are single sided. Some of the papers are very Kiwi with the Paua Shell on top and other are very elegant.

My rules are pretty straight forward and really easy!!!

Hi Kathie!
Thanks for the wonderful job organizing everyone for the hop and celebration this week. Outstanding effort and so appreciated by us all. Your cards this week just take my breath away. Absolutely stunning with the most beautiful papers. I really think this sketch is just super for these ADFD images - it shows them off so well. And in your case, I think these are your best cards ever. Totally gorgeous. Your coloring on the vintage school girl is superb - I love the monochromatic look of that card. And the little pixie is so sweet and ethereal. What a fun week of celebration we'll have. Hope your week is especially wonderful.
Sharon :)
