Favourite: Floral or Cute (and 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 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: Floral or Cute (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Although I love to use floral papers and embellishments, the image has to be cute! I love anything cuddly and fluffy so I've chosen this adorable teddy who's holding his paws out for a cuddle.

I have to agree, this one is too tough.  I try to personalize my cards, so that has a lot to do with what image I choose.  I'm going with flowers for this challenge because I love coloring pretty floral images.

For me it is floral all the way..I can die cut and colour flowers everyday,
all day.

Floral, cute, decisions. A hard choice, I love cute and flowers so I have kind of sat on the fence with this one a little bit. It always depends on the recipient which one I choose. I think for this challenge cute wins with this adorable character.

I do love both cute and floral and I enjoy them both very much to make, but for this challenge I decided to go for cute. I really wanted to make an easter card with a sweet bunny and chick so I had no other choice than to go for cute. ;)

I do love both and send cute when appropriate, but I love colouring flowers with my Zig markers and they can appeal to many different ages too.

Cute, Cute, Cute all  the way for me!! I love colouring cute images, animals probably being my favourite (because I am rubbish at colouring hair!!). Cute images go together so well with my vast collection of contemporary paper pads too.

I do like colouring floral images, but tend to gravitate towards the cute 8 times out of 10.  There are just so many adorable characters out there, for every season, and I cannot resist a little critter.

This one isn't hard. Definitely flowers. I love flowers. They make me happy. I love the fields with tulips, daffodils and hyacinths with their bright colours and the smell. But I also love to have some flowers in my house.Pure enjoyment.

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.
