This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Fibre (eg ribbon, lace, twine) & 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 twine and lace too, my favourite is definitely ribbon.  
I usually reach for a satin ribbon, but opted for a soft lilac gingham for my baking themed apron card.

It's hard to choose a favourite but when I don't know what to add I make
a grab for the twine so I guess that is my favourite because it works
with anything.


It's Velvet ribbon for me, love the texture and luxury look it has.

Definitely ribbon especially the silk one. I love how beautifully it shines.


It's ribbon for me.  There's nothing nicer than a beautiful bow to finish off a card. I should practice what I preach really as I have drawers full of the stuff!!


Lace, lace, give me lace any time! 
I love these roll laces as you can use them as borders etc.

I almost use twine on every card I make. 
For me it's a finishing touch. So that's why twine is my favourite.

So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Fibre (eg ribbon, lace, twine) & why.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Hugs from the AYLI girls.
