Good Monday to all!
I hope everyone is off to a great start to their work week. I feel like the weekend flew by, and I didn't really do anything but make cards. Love that! I wanted to make a card that was bold, and bright to send to R, but wasn't sure what to do. Then, I remembered something he wore to the gym not too long ago, and had an "a ha!" moment. He LOVES the bright neon yellow that is so popular lately, and I just happened to have received all of the Hero Arts Neon inks recently. This is how things turned out.
This bright neon ink is fabulous! In my picture it looks a bit more orange, but in real life it's definitely neon. The contrast of the bright dots with the dark chevron stripes made me super excited, and I love the small pop of color added with the pink heart. This card is bold, like R's personality, and it's bright and cheerful like his smile. I wasn't in love with this card at first, but it's growing on me. It looked like very simple card at first, but the more I look at this picture, there seems to be a bit more going on. I could totally see a room in our house with these colors. lol I was excited to combine the following challenges on my card.
Simon's Wednesday Challenge: Emboss It
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #134 - Tic Tac Toe (Dots, Gray, Twine this time)
The Paper Players Challenge #206: Sketch
Pile It On Challenge #30: Embossing (the background panel with the dots is embossed with the Diamond Plate embossing folder)
Wishing all of you a great week!
