Crafty Sentiments

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Christmas Embellishment (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I've opted for a modern image,  but I guess my chosen red and green colours are fairly traditional!  However, it's cute and therefore feels very modern rather than traditional like a nativity or wintry scene.

I choose Modern as my favourite.
Zentangle has been around for years but I love the modern twist we have seen in the recent year...
Although I don't class my card as zentangle... more like doodling.


I like both but going with modern as I thought this little Christmas tree looked great embossed in white against the black.


I like traditional! Lovely green and red colours and cute Christmas images as these owls definitely are :)


A modern style Christmas  card  for me every time.
 Why? Because I can't resist a cute little person or a fluffy bear !!


 I think owls are cute and so I have also added some googly eyes to my owls and went with a mainly white theme to showcase the image and added some fluffy stuff for snow on the die cut trees.


My favourite Christmas style is traditional. I love the colours green and red, especially the bright colours.  And I like to use images of cute snowmen. 

So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Christmas Style (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Hugs from the AYLI girls.
