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

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

It does depend on the occasion but I love brights. I like to add some black in there too which really makes the colours pop


I knew as soon as I saw the challenge theme that I would be choosing pastels but having now seen my card I'm worried that I've gone a little in the middle.  I much prefer the muted tones of pastels, especially pink and purple so both have featured on my card.

Hmmm, brights or pastels, it really depends on the image or occasion.  For this image, I love the pastels because they are soft and sweet, just like this cute bunny.


Hard to decide, I do like all colours. It all depends on the mood I am in. Today I was in a pastel mood, I love these LOTV papers which inspired me to colour this image.

I like both pastel and bright colours, but I am not doing really well with pastel colours. Sometimes I try to make a card in pastel colours and then I am adding too much colour and it becomes a card with bright I love making Halloween cards and they really need bright colours, so I went for bright this challenge.

I love brights and I love pastels but it all depends upon the type of card I am making. I've gone for brights for this card - they just suit this little penguin so much.

For me it all depends on who the card is for and, with this card being for a baby, I have gone for pastels using my favourite baby paper pad.

Most of the time I am a bright and breezy kind of girl so it has to be bright colours for me, especially on these contemporary style Christmas cards.

I actually had to look back over cards I have already made because in my head I was thinking "pastels", but it seems that, in reality, I favour brights, quite a lot of brights if truth be told!

No question about that: bright colours. Bright colours always make me happy!

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

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