You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

**coming soon**

I'm definitely a pearls gal; I love their soft lustre and I have packs of them in every possible colour! I've even added some extra pearls on a string amongst the flowers.

I have always loved buttons.  I loved to go to estate sales for the wonderful buttons you could find. I like using them on cards because they can add a feminine, masculine, simple or elegant look depending on the button you use.

I do love to use pearls on feminine cards. Male cards require something a little more rugged, so buttons can look really interesting embellishments.

I love pearls, because of their elegant look. I don't like a lot of bulk on my card, so I prefer pearls and especially mini pearls.

I love pearls, they add that elegant touch and are definitely more suitable to this style of card than buttons.

I have tons of you do, but decided upon buttons here, as they were the perfect size for the flower centres.

I do like buttons and pearls, but I tend to use buttons for boys and pearls for girls, and as I make more girls cards than boys, I guess that makes pearls my favourite!

I don´t have a favorite. It depends on the type of card that I´m making.
For this card I used pearls because they suit better with this card.

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.
