Merry Monday #129 - Neon Colors

Hey everyone, it's Monday and that means time for another fun challenge at Merry Monday!  This week's theme is chosen by the wonderful Kristie and she has challenged us to make a Christmas card using neon colors - fun, right?

You can see all the details and gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team here.  Or stop by their blogs and give them some love:

Katie Melhus (you're here!)
Jen Mitchell

and our Featured Designer for October:

Brian King

I can't wait to see everyone's entries in the gallery this week, I'm always so impressed with all of the creations.

I also have some more "homework" to share from Day 9 of the Copics class, focusing on backgrounds.  I haven't made a card with my image yet, but I played around and made this scene using the cloud background technique.  It's very subtle and hopefully it shows up enough in this photo.

Thanks for stopping by, keep it crafty!

Stamps: Snow Day (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: Hero Arts Neons, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock: SSS 120lb white
Misc: Blender Pens (SU), Glossy Accents
