Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something

Usually we provide a few options for you to choose from. 
You just need to select and use your favourite option in order to join in. 

For a chance to win our prize or top-3 spot, 
you need to tell us why you've made your choice.
That way our team and readers can appreciate why it's your favourite.

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'bunny', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the rabbit from Bambi !

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Rounded corners or Sharp Edges (ie circles or squares!) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Looking back at my recent creations they've been mainly corners rather than curves, but if I really ask myself what I prefer, it's definitely circles. I like their softness compared to the harshness of a angle and I like the handmade quality of a shaped card. This Tattered Lace doily die is one of my favourites for circular cards because of all the lacy detail around the edge.

I like the softness of circles though I am a girl that loves symmetry.  I also love all the symbolism attached to a circle or ring.

Circles for me, I love things that are round, round flowers, balls, pom poms, dies and frames.


This is a hard choice. I use both circles and squares, so my choice today is squares. It always depends on the image. This design suited square and straight edges. 

Most of times I make square or rectangle cards with sharp edges, although I also love making circle cards. For my images I love using circles, because it is a softer look, so I combined those 2 options on this card. A rectangle/or square combined with may circles for my images. 

For my card base I prefer squares as I find them easier for layouts but with my images I just go with whatever suits them best and these bunnies are definitely meant for circles.

Straight edges and symmetry for me so this was an easy choice.

I do like a nice square, I like the pleasing symmetry and straight lines

For me it is squares. I love all things square and straight. 

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.
