As You Like It Challenge #61 - Favourite Layout and WHY

Hi Crafters,

I hope you are well and having a good week.
Today marks the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and the theme is 'Your Favourite Layout and Why' - don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite to qualify for the prize.

Here is my card and as I have been in to using dies recently and my favourite cards always have lots of layers on them this is my layout.
Pearlescent Shimmer Cardstock
Spellbinders Matting Basics A & B Dies
Tonic Studios Deco Oval Trellis Die
Sue Wilson Lisbon Die
Die'sire Edge'ables Die - On Your Special Day 
La La Land Filigree Border Die
'Mum' Word Stamp
Embossing Powder
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fussy & Fancy - #146 Birthdays
Crafty Card Makers & More - #146 NO Patterned Papers
Our Sponsor this time is....
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps if you would like to join in with us, please make a project showing us your favourite layout and tell us why it is your favourite.

Who can believe that it is Friday again tomorrow? I know I can't. We have a Bank Holiday weekend to enjoy too, although the weatherman is decidedly glooming in his forecast of it.
I have my Farmers Market tomorrow so will be late in getting round to you all but take care and see you soon.
