Neon Holiday Cheer

A couple of weeks ago, some friends & I had a fun-filled day hitting the local crafting stores. It's so much fun shopping with crafters; we wander around separately and then share our finds. The tough part is trying to decide what to actually purchase! One of the things I found was neon ribbon ... on sale! how could I pass that up‽ So I was super-excited to find an excuse to use my new neon-yellow ribbon for the Neon Color challenge at Merry Monday!

I had a difficult time getting a clear photo of the bright colors. Click to enlarge.

The snowflake-themed border, sentiment, and snowflake stamp are from Don & Daisy's Winter Fun collection by Marianne Design. I heat-embossed the borders in bright pink and neon orange. The snowflake was heat-embossed in the same pink powder. The sentiment was heat-embossed in a mix of the bright pink powder & glitter, and detailed with a hot pink gel pen.

The tiny "cups o' cheer" are cut from a pink metal sheet from Add a Little Dazzle with the Party Glasses die from Memory Box. I placed them on a strip of neon yellow ribbon. The card is backed onto a neon green cardstock.
