Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.

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 !

So get crafting and remember to have fun 
and enjoy your crafting time.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Circle Embelishment (eg buttons, gems, pearls, sequins) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

My large stash of flat-backed pearls gives the game away for me; I've got them in dozens of colours. I'm not a huge fan of sequins or buttons on cards but love the sheen of a trio of pearls (or two). 

 I love circle embellishments.  I have to be honest and tell you I chose my favourite to match the image.  Pearls are at the top of the list, they come in such a wide variety of colors and they can look very elegant or fun .


Circles, I love circle embellishments on cards, I feel you can fit more on your projects and they just look good!..


Circle embellishment are a big favourite. I love my circle dies as they are so useful to frame an image, but great for adding sentiments. Also I have a stash of sequins, brads, pearls and gems

 I love using my hotfix gems as embellishment on my cards, so I had to use those on my card for this challenge. I used them in my 2 favourite ways: in the sky just as a little embellishment and on flowers.

Pearls and enamel dots are among my favourites, but definitely pearls on a wedding card as they add that touch of elegance.

It's round gems for me, they just add a little touch of "something" without adding too much bulk to the card.

Now, you all know that embellishments bring me out in a rash, so this was tough.  However, I felt quite smug about my improvised circular snowflakes on this one!

I love circle embellishments, they are so versatile. I do use them very often and I have a lot different types of circle embellishments (pearls, studs, confetti, dew drops etc.).
For this card I used my favourite Hot Fix dome studs. 

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.
