What's your favourite?

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using
your favourite type of embossing & why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

The sponsor of this challenge is
Freckled Fawn

For my card I have chosen embossing paste not your normal embossing medium
but to me this falls into the Dry embossing category once you have finished your creation
because it dries hard.

So why is it my favourite?

Because I love the texture and wow it provides
especially the white onto kraft cardstock.
I made my own mask from a memory box die masked off the area
had some fun! The flower is a tattered florals also cut from Kraft and coloured with
distress inks the cute little butterfly button I can not remember where I got it but it was sat on my desk just waiting for the right project.

Here are some challenge I am playing along with:
