Thank you in mauve
The background paper here has rather a grandiose name: Pearlescent Plume Blush. But, it deserves it! It's a surprisingly inexpensive but elegant and beautiful paper. It was very challenging to photograph, but hopefully you can get a good idea of the pattern and shimmer of the the paper.
The scrap of mulberry with the gold print came with a tiny paper sampler that comes with $25 orders. I keep those scraps of fancy papers in a little drawer, and it was just impulse to check it while making this card. Since I do not own any more of it, I checked with other colors of paper/cardstock to make sure this was where I wanted to use it. Surprisingly, the mulberry just looked "dirty" over all the other colors. But for whatever reason, perhaps the sheen of the paper, it shows just a hint of pink with this paper.
