Did you ever do it?

When I first started paper crafting, I admit I did go a little paper-crazy. I would walk down the aisles in my local Michaels or Jo-ann and spend hours staring and flipping through all glorious paper on display. I tried to make perfect paper combinations in my head - which colours would go well together, did I have the accents to go with those combinations etc. I would fall in love with all kinds of paper, buy it, get it home and then again, spend hours just staring at their beauty. I wonder if anyone else does this too - just sitting with the papers in their hand and dreaming :)

Seriously, as I write this, I feel a little silly. But I still love going to the stores and seeing what new stuff they have. I still haven't ventured in to online buying for paper. I am a little skeptical. I like to touch the paper and see the colors before I buy. Even then, I have problems working with some colors - one of them being navy blue. I never know how to work that out. I love the color. I love all the different papers I have in my stash with great designs in  that color but when I take them out, I never feel satisfied with the colour combos I create. Still, here is my attempt........once again to make the color work, though I am not too happy with the result.

I am submitting this card for two challenges - the card patterns sketch and the shabby tea room challenge
