Neon Lights.

The challenge over at Merry Monday
is Neon Colours.
I couldn't think of a darn thing to use  for this
so was going to pass up on it.
Then I saw my pal Di had commented that she had
the same reservations and was going to resort to
rushing out and buying some post it notes in neon colours.
Just as I was reading this I glanced at my desk and lo and behold
what did I spy
Yes Miss Di your a life saviour!
Di even gave me some ideas too.
As the strips were only thin I pulled out my miniature punches
to see if anything fitted.
I found tiny Christmas trees and leaves.
Decided to go with the leaf punch and create a wreath.
I had a Christmas sentiment to use by Papermania
and whilst having a rummage in the ink pad drawer found a
stamp pad I had bought ages ago under the guise of
'That will come in handy one day'
Well todays THE DAY!
Also found at the bottom of a pile of stash some
bright purple and pink cardboard packaging I had also saved
for that rainy day
So many hours later
here is my Neon Christmas Card.
I used a white card blank which I layered up
with purple and then pink cardboard
and finally white card stock.
Loads of leaves punched to make the wreath.
Ribbon and gems from my stash.
Entering into the following challenges:
Merry Monday Christmas #129 Neon colours.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra # Christmas cards.
Christmas Card Challenge #45  Layered up.
Fab 'n'Funky#232 Anything with ribbon.
Top Tip Tuesday# Non-traditional Christmas.

You have embraced the neon! When I read Di's post, I thought about the neon sticky notes that I have stashed around the house and realized that I could have used some of them. They sure do make a pretty wreath! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!
