This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Line on our Bingo Board (& 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 love quite a few of the lines, but my favourite embellishments are usually ribbon & pearls and I do love a spot of purple, so I've opted for the backwards diagonal line.

My Favourite line is the middle vertical line I LOVE C&S so had to try to incorporate
that in my line but as many of you already know I am NOT a pink lover so it has to be purple..
soooo lavender is purple and so are my gems


My favourite line is fussy & fancy, lace and pearls.  I love layers which translates to fussy for me and with this image, how could you not want to fancy it up? I felt the doily would give a wonderful lacy look for this card and pearls are my favourite type of bling.


My favourite line is Gems, Purple and Clean and Simple. I love the CAS look for wedding cards. The purple happens to be the colour for the couple getting married next month and the little gems are heart shaped. 


My favourite line is fussy & fancy, lace and pearls because I love to use lots of layers and pretty details


I did the middle row up/down "gems, purple and CAS" - I love gems, and this image was perfect for the purple colour and CAS design :)


This Bingo board was great for me as I loved all the choices but in the end I went for the top horizontal line, FUSSY & FANCY - GEMS - RIBBON.
I love making cards with lots of details, elements and layers so this line was perfect for me.


I went for LACE-PURPLE-DIES. All of three are my favourite, I just love using lace on cards, it gives such lovely texture and lovely shades of purple are perfect for the spring time that's just waking up and of course dies, just can't do without them - I used lovely Marianne Design flowers which also remind me of spring (which is also my favourite time of year).



I've gone for Pearls, Clean and Simple and Pink. I don't often put too much fuss on my cards so this line suited me perfectly.


It was a no-brainer for me - CAS, purple and gems!


**coming soon**

My favourite line is: pearls, clean and simple, pink.
I love clean and simple cards and bright pink. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite of our options.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to win the prize.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.

  5. Someone finally stopped by my blog to comment on my entry. It's OK with me if my card doesn't qualify to win. I play along for fun, and I don't ever mind if I don't win ((I never do anyway, LOL). Thanks for stopping by.
    Karen - Entry #4

    1. Don't worry Karen, we're more interested in knowing why you chose what you did, because our challenge is all about making stuff you love and telling us why you loved it. :0) We all have 'wonky line' days.

  6. Oooh I loved this challenge! We often make cards but no-one knows why we use what we use - this has given me a chance to tell you! The little bit of lace is used very economically 'cos I just love to look at it and stroke it (not a fetish I assure you) instead of using it. ALL my faves are on this card, purple, lace, die-cuts and Flowers! Thank you so much for posting this one - just a lurvely challenge! Hugs to you all Sue Pxxx
