This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Autumn or Halloween Colours (& 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 really do love all the Autumn colours but I've gone for Halloween because it gives me a good excuse to add black to my cards.  I think black used with yellow, orange or purple is really striking

I love purple for Halloween and although I am not usually a fan of orange, I love how it gives a warm pop to the purple for my Halloween themed flag decoration. 

I miss the ever changing colours of the trees in fall.  I love the warm colours of orange, yellow, red and even purple are the colours I so fondly remember of fall when I was growing up. 

I love the rich warm colours for Halloween. It is like the last bit of warmth before the cold winter to follow.

I love all things Halloween - black and purple, what's not to like?

A Halloween is not a Halloween card if there isn't any black on it, so that is the first colour I always use! I love the dark effect it gives.Then I really love purple on a Halloween card, it goes perfect together with the black to give a spooky touch. A little bit of orange finishes the whole thing. I love the brightness from the colour together with the other dark colours.

I'm not a summer person and am always happy to see the autumn colours (and cooler weather!) appearing - walks are so pretty at this time of year.

I'm not a bright colours person, but do love the more muted shades autumn brings and even though my card is not autumnal, I thought they would make a great colour palette for a man.

I love the colours that autumn brings with her. At the moment our walks are changing visually day by day which is fabulous.

I don't make a lot of Halloween cards, but I do love the colours of purple, orange, green, and black together.

My favourite autumn/Halloween colour is orange; the colour of pumpkins.

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.
