Both of these patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye and are the from the Miss Caroline collection. While the flower pattern is gorgeous, and the wood grain is great, I love the orange and teal "B Sides" more and would purchase it for that reason.
Two more example here from the On The Sunny Side collection. I love the "B Side" much more. Now there are exceptions to this rule:
This patterned paper from the Nantucket collection from Pink Paislee, (called Clam Bake), has a great pattern on both sides. But I have to say I prefer the "A Side" on this one.
