Favourite non-traditional Christmas Colour Combo (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

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite NON-Traditional Christmas Colour(s) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

My favourite colours for any theme would be pastel pink, blue and purple, so I've combined all three of them on my gift box project.  I love the softness of these colours and enjoy the break from traditional red, gold and green for Christmas.

My favorite non-traditional color combo for Christmas is icy blue, pink and sage green.  I love seeing pink holly with sage leaves and icy blue is perfect for all the snow I color for my cards.  Plus, the colors just seem to me, to work well together. 

Pink..I love pink Christmas cards as an alternative for colour,
and sneaking in some shaker elements is a bonus.

 I have had these papers for years, so I have finally used them and love the combination of dark blue, purple and cream. I think they will be appearing in more projects.

I do love red/pink and green on my Christmas cards and most of the Christmas cards that I make have these colours on them. But after seeing the combination of kraft paper with an orange sky on them about 2 years ago, I knew one day I had to make a card in these colours. I think it is a really pretty combination and it gives a card such a warm feeling, so perfect for a Christmas card.

I've gone with pink. I think it makes a really pretty change and goes well with either silver or gold.

My favourite non-traditional Christmas colour would be blues and purples. Blue for icy wintry colours and a touch of purple for a bit of contrast. 

I do love purple at Christmas, it just adds a touch of luxury, especially when teamed with silver or gold

My favourite non-traditional Christmas colours are blues or purples. I think those colours together with green are a beautiful combination.

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.
