Grab your sunglasses!

Hi there!

I am serious! Get those sunglasses before you scroll down, there's some neon on the way!

This project is for the following challenges:

moxie fab world ~ Keen on neon challenge ~ showcasing one of the biggest trends at the moment!
cas-ualfridays  ~ Gift tags
sentimental sundays ~ non traditional Christmas colors
ribbon girls ~ Christmas project with ribbon {On the tags}






Not too long ago, when I was organising my paper stash... I came across this paper pack, and I wondered... Hannelie, why on earth did you buy this???
And today, I am delighted I did, because paired with black, I really love the effect of this unconventional Christmas set!
For my Christmas tree , I have cut a triangle, and decorated it with pieces of a leaf die cut from Sizzix. I finished it off with a bit of bling and a punched star on top of the tree.

The sentiment is my own, digital, and yours to use if you like it!

Have a great day!

LOVE! These will look fantastic on monochrome gifts - such a bold pop of colour!

Geri said...

These are "right on", "cool man" "far out" (flashing a peace sign)...

Brings back memories of neon posters and black lights! Love the absolute brilliant contrast with the black. Using the leaf die is sheer creative genius!

Congrats on the CASology win. Absolutely #1 choice in my books too!

Love the new sentiments - thanks :)

You weren't kidding ... there's some color in these projects but they are so nice! Thanks for the wordart and ideas. Definitely will use them similar to what you've done, however, I think with softer colors (tee-hee)! :0)
