What Would You Make With This?

Very much like beauty, color also is in the eye of the beholder. A lively shade of cobalt blue that evokes a certain reaction in one person, may evoke quite the opposite in another.

What's your take on this palette? If you had all the colors in your stash for this palette, what would you make with it?
