Favourite Traditional or Contemporary Christmas Style (and why)

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 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 Traditional or Contemporary Xmas Style (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Whilst I quite like the traditional festive colours of red and green, I do like a more cute modern style of image, and this little pingu stretching to deocrate his tree is right up my street.  Penguins are also my favourite Christmas Critter, so this little guy is a winner in my book!

Iʻm going with Contemporary.  I love using all the cutsie Christmas stamps and dies out there that lend themselves so well to contemporary colors.

Traditional for me, lots of stuff, ribbons, bells, green, red, poinsettias snow, 
all of it, so pretty..

I love all types of Christmas styles. This time I have chosen contemporary. I love those traditional papers in lovely non traditional colours. Christmas roses are another favourite flower. 

I really love making cute cards, so I have chosen the contemporary style. I just cannot resist cute image and love colouring them.

I love both, but for the purpose of this challenge have gone contemporary.  It's given me a good reason to use one of my unused stamp sets.

I am a fan of cute so it is most definitely modern for me. Unusual colours, snazzy paper and a cute character ticks all the boxes!!

I tend to make quirkier Christmas cards so contemporary suits me well, it allows me to use all sorts of cute character images, some tongue-in-cheek sentiments, and to avoid the traditional red and green combo.

For me that is traditional. I like the colors green and red. Also for the usual images such as baubles, Christmas stars, Christmas trees, sleds, etc.

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.
