Double D Challenge - Neon/Brights

Hello friends.  The challenge over at the Double D this week is all about NEON and BRIGHT colors!

Those colors will wake you up, won't they?!!  Great inspiration from the Design Team for this challenge too, but I was especially taken by Donna's card that you can see HERE.  Her use of the bright and bold colors against a black background really wow'd me and I had to see what I could come up with!

I started by blending some of my brightest inks (Raspberry Fizz, Green Parakeet, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, & Hawaiian Shores) onto a piece of white cardstock, and then used PTI's Butterfly Cover Plate die to cut it out.  After that it was easy to add it to a layer of black cardstock, emboss my sentiment (PTI's Choose Joy stamp set), and add some hot pink thick baker's twine (SU!).  Quick and easy and packs quite a punch with all those bright colors!  (And they're even brighter IRL...not much sunshine lately here to photograph with!!)  Thank you Donna for the FABULOUS inspiration!!

There's still time to play along with this fun challenge and a great prize up for grabs too!  You can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
