COORDINATING COLORS FOR DESIGNER PAPERS

It isn't always easy to tell from the catalog which colors coordinate with designer papers. In a perfect world, you'd purchase all of the designer papers from me and have the pleasure of discovering coordinating colors for all the gorgeous papers, but . . . someone recently told me that the world isn't perfect.

I love this stamp too and have found two of them that I can't live without -- thanks for sharing your ideas.
