Favourite Christmas Embellishment & Why

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.

Usually we provide a few options for you to choose from. 
You just need to select and use your favourite option in order to join in. 

For a chance to win our prize or top-3 spot, 
you need to tell us why you've made your choice.
That way our team and readers can appreciate why it's your favourite.

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'bunny', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the rabbit from Bambi !

So get crafting and remember to have fun 
and enjoy your crafting time.

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 love any excuse to add a little sparkle to my cards so for me it's got to be Glamour Dust which I sprinkle on some Glossy Accents underneath my Christmas critter.  

I find myself going back to red and white baker's twine year after year.  It is perfect for tags and to give that sweet but not too bumpy bow and you can't beat the colors for Christmas.

Gosh, I love everything so much as far as Christmas goes, but for my projects I will have to say snowflakes...and gems...


I love poinsettia flowers, although in fact bracts. They just speak Christmas to me. They brighten up the house during the long winter months when very few other flowers are around. 

I love using shimmer on my Christmas cards and that is what I did for my project today. I love adding shimmer/glitter on an image with a clear glitter pen. It gives a nice subtle shimmer and I love that look. But I also added shimmer on my tag. I have coloured the frame from this tag with Distress ink mixed with Iridescerent medium, which gives a really nice shimmer. So pretty!

It's glitter and anything sparkly for me. Christmas is a good excuse to make anything sparkle! I have used white glitter here on my snow, but it doesn't show too well in the photo.

It's bells and snowflakes for me. The sound of jingly bells conjures up childhood days when the local Fire Brigade used to transport Father Christmas around the village. There is also nothing more festive than snowflakes on cards or decorations.

Snowflakes!  They are just magical, so pretty, and they make me feel festive (especially if I am snug indoors by the fire while they are falling outside).

My favorite Christmas embellishments are baubles. I like the colors and the shimmer. I especially prefer red with silver. Those colors give me the real Christmas feeling.

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.
