Merry Monday #129 - Use Neon Colors

Good morning friends.  The challenge at Merry Monday this week is to use neon colors on your Christmas card.  I admit that when I first saw this I turned up my nose a bit as when I think of neon, I think of highlighter yellow!  However, when I saw the design teams cards, I got excited about the bright colors they used and knew I had to play along!  One of my favorite stamp sets (right now!) is SU!'s new "Ornamental Pine".  Since I had just finished a card using traditional colors with this set and it was still laying out, it hit me it would be easy to make the same card with Green Galore (SU! - retired) and Pink Passion (also SU! and retired).  Take a look:



There hasn't been a whole lot of sun in my area, but in real life, this card really "pops" with the green and pink!  I matted with a bright silver mirror paper, and also made a snowflake ornament (Memory Box) from the same silver paper.  A few sequins finished my "neon" card.


Still lots of time to play along, so check out all the beautiful (and bright!) cards and information to play along right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Wednesday!
