I love writing sets like this and seem to be developing quite a collection. This truly is on of the best I have got though. My favourite 2 page patterns aren't even shown on the image pictures and the envelopes...omg they are perfect. They are simple with an old fashioned looking border in a faded green. White white like the background colour of this page is not seen in this set. Just a wonderful greyish white, giving the whole set a really French feel. The back of the paper has faded looking French imagery on the back that are simple and elegant. This really is a gorgeous set without seeming childish or too bold like some of the kath kidson prints. It is totally worth the money.
