Welcome to As You Like It Challenge
Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something

For a change to win our prize or a top-3 spot, 
please remember tell us why you've made your choice

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Cool or Warm 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:

Using LOTV Bunnies Daisy Chain
Warm cheerful colours for me! I'm always pleased to see the back of Winter colours when Christmas is finished and I can start using lovely bright Spring papers again

Although I like blues, I do prefer warmer pink and golden browns in this cold weather.  


At this time of year it is nice to have some pretty warm colours. Nice to think spring is just around the corner.

Using Little Friends Mouse with Daisy
I love warm colours on my cards. I really love it when an animal is coloured in warm colours and I also love this flower in the warm pink.

Blues and purples/lilacs have been my favourite colours for a long time so looking at colour charts I must be a cool colour person.  I do love to see flowers in these colours, they make a change from the normal reds and pinks etc.

I am a warm tone sort of girl, rich reds and russets are my kind of colours but here I have included a bit of cool blue as contrast.

Although I love the warm colours (you kinda have to go warm with many of the furry critters) I do love the sophistication of cool colours too, and cool seems to work so well for the male cards.  Blues, greens, and lilacs are so soothing.

My favourite colours are cool colours. Blue/green colours reminds me of beautiful seas/oceans. Beautiful blue skies and green for plants and (new) leaves.

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.

  8. A comment was left on my entry #6 that I needed to say why warm colors were my favorites. In the paragraph immediately above the photo of my card, it says, "I do love the typical "warm" colors of Valentine's Day because they are really our first chance to add warm colors to our otherwise cold winter palette." :-D
