Paper Coordinates: Verdigris Strawberries

OK, so I need to work on naming these paper coordinates as this one makes no sense - except that the pink reminds me of strawberries and the teal is a lovely verdigris colour.... Either way, I love this combination:
It makes me extra happy that I came up with this combo on my own - it wasn't inspired by a particular pattern or already-coordinated paper pack. I started by pulling out the solid watermelon pink from my loose paper folders. The stripes jumped out at me next and I wasn't sure about the match but side-by-side they were just lovely. The two chevron patterns fell into place nicely - these are the only two papers that came from the same pack - I really like how they each complement a different side of this spectrum. Lastly, I spotted the dark green floral and knew it would round out the collection perfectly. Bonus: it was the exact same hunter green as in the stripes.

An unusual combination, but I'll definitely be making a collage with this bunch!
