The sponsor of this challenge is

Crafty Sentiments

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite 2 Embellishments (& why).
You MUST explain WHY they are your 2 favourites.

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

Pearls and ribbons have been my favourites for a long time.  I love the softness of the ribbon, and creating a little trio of pearls, usually to fill a corner.  I also like using pearls in the scoops of these scalloped cards.

My Favourite embellishments are Enamel dots and Bakers twine
I love both of these embellishments because they come in all different colours of the rainbow and are great on all card types.

using Little Friends
Butterflies and Pearls. I love Butterflies 'cause they are so pretty as the focal point or to dot about here and there and Pearls, one of my favourite pieces of jewellery .

using With Love

I love ribbon and pearls. They work so gorgeous together. 

using Tess Summer Fun

When I use embellishments I will always reach for seam binding, for a lovely soft bow and pearls for a bit of texture and interest, particularly in corners or to balance the card. 

I love vintage laces and paper flowers as well as frantage....I am a vintage girl lol!

using Harriet Witchy Ride
For me my 2 favorite embellishments are rhinestones and twine. The rhinestones give my cards a bit of bling and fill up corners or the heart of a flower. And the twine gives a playful effect behind a sentiment or flower. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite 2 Embellishments (& why).
You MUST explain WHY they are your 2 favourites.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
