FTL77 - Debossed/Embossed Flowers

I had so much fun doing the Clean & Simple Stamping FTL76 last week that I wanted to play again! This week's sketch (FTL77) shows an image stamped on the right side of the card. Instead of stamping I decided to use my SU! Manhattan Flower folder. I've been a big fan of letterpress printing lately so I used the flowers "pushed in"/debossed on this card.
The second card has the flowers "pushed out"/embossed. There was no room for the sentiment so I cheated on the sketch by putting the sentiment (A Muse 3-872B) at the top - and since I was already cheating I decided to round the corners. The patterned ribbon is from Making Memories (Hillary from the Noteworthy collection) and the patterned paper is from Dream Street Papers (Chamomile from the Carma Collection).
Simple and quick!! Which do you prefer - embossed or debossed??

Oh, both are lovely, but I've always favored embossed for no reason I can put into words. You're inspiring me to use more kraft cs, Michelle!

I love them both, but the debossed really calls my name! I like the extra dimension that it creates! Very pretty!
