Favourite: Feminine or Masculine (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 2 contrasting options for you to choose from. 
Join us by using your favourite option in your creation. 

To be eligible to win our prize, or top-3 spot, 
you must explain why you've made your choice,
so we can understand why you like it so much!

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

So get crafting and remember the main requirement in creating is 
to have fun and enjoy your crafting time!

Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge. 
Our winner is:

A beautiful card and I love the squirrels!

So, onto our next challenge

The sponsor of this challenge is:

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Masculine or Feminine (& 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 very much favour the cute, fussy, floral style and I find the more traditionally masculine / minimalist cards much more of a challenge!

Today I am picking masculine.  When I have the right supplies and the right inspiration, I love making masculine because it challenges me.  


Masculine projects are my absolute favourite with a very large masculine family
it sort of has to be, but I love making them..


I just love making cards. Male cards are a good challenge, so I have chosen feminine today as I love creating with pretty flowers. 

Most of the times my cards are made for women, but I also love making cards for my nephews. They are still young, so I don't have to make a very masculine card, which makes everything a bit easier. Both boys can speak english now, so extra bonus that I can use this fun sentiment on a card that I have made for them!

Definitely feminine for me.  I like adding embellishments such as flowers, pearls etc and you can't really do that so much with a masculine card.

Well, usually I would say Feminine BUT this year I have challenged myself to make more masculine cards. These designa are a pretty good start, I think!!

I love them equally although masculine cards are a bit more challenging. With the right papers and colours it isn't hard. Lately I am making more masculine cards to build up a stash.  

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.
