AYLI (DT) Patterned Paper or Embossed

It scares me sometimes how quickly these Thursdays come round!  Blink, and suddenly it is time for another challenge from AS YOU LIKE IT.

This time around, the challenge for you is to choose your favourite between Patterned Paper or Embossed Paper.

I'm pretty sure that our Annette will have something to say about me and my love of patterned papers!  I have never really found the love for embossing, but I have certainly found it for pretty papers.  I love the challenge of being able to match the design to an image!

Here's my card


See, tiny pink cups!

Image is LOTV Jasmine Coffee
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
MFT double stitched circle die
Tonic plain circle die for matting
Dovecraft Tea House papers with Basic Grey Kraft papers
Sentiment is LOTV from Set 103 Sweet and Simple
Martha Stewart border punch to finish off


It's a digi sponsor this time, so for all you digi lovers out there
The sponsor of this challenge is

2 digital images of winners choice

Now it's over to you, you have two weeks to show us your make AND tell us why you made the choice you did.

Have fun!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Annette said...

Hmm, I was expecting you to opt for embossed papers ...... HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Yup, you're the paper queen, the perfect shade and theme for every image. (and sentiment queen for the same reason). She's lovely honey, and I think she's my favourite Jasmine too. Love it. xx (ps are you sure you don't like embossed papers more? ......)
