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 Metallic or Glitter card (& 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 got a lot more glitter card than mirror, and I especially love glitter (card or otherwise) for Christmas makes. I've never really liked using mirror card and find it very unforgiving in photographs, so it's an easy choice for me.

I love everything shiny!  I love the look of glitter and glitter paper, but really donʻt like the literal fallout.  All those little glittery flakes are pretty, but such a mess to clean up.  I do love metallics, especially when you have as much fun creating as I did making this card.

Oh my, metallic or glitter card stock, I love both equally so used both..but I think Metallic sneaks in on top...

I tend to use metallic card more than glitter card. I love the elegance metallic card can give to a special card, especially an anniversary. 

I love both metallic and glitter cardstock, but for my project today I have chosen my absolute favourite: orange metallic cardstock. I love the subtle shimmer and the colour is really beautiful. I can't buy it anymore, so it is a real treasure for me. 

I tend to only use glitter cardstock on Christmas cards but I do love to use metallic card when I have heat embossed anything.  It just matches so well.

I do love a bit of snazz on my cards, especially at Christmas so golden metallic card adds just the right amount on these die cut layers.

I go for metallic. I love the shine and the extra touch on a card.
Some glitter cardstock or DP loses a lot of glitter which you find for days on your hands or face. Very annoying. 

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.
