I chose matt as it appears on pretty much every one of my creations. I have a few sheets of card with a pearl lustre to them and at Christmas I use mirri board but even then I will still have a matt mat!!
I think it gives a more defined and true colour and I always print any digital papers on to matt paper/card for a touch of luxury.
I used a matt ribbed card in steel grey for the card base and mats on this card. I used Clementine with her watering can and daisies to coordinate with the totally gorgeous Pink Petticoat papers and finished off with pearls, a little sentiment and a spotty bow.
