A Neon Christmas?

Where does the time go? I can't believe it's been almost
a week since I last blogged. Life has been a little crazy lately
around my house but I did manage to get into my craft room this
morning, even though it was at 3:30 in the morning?!? 
What else are you supposed to do when you can't sleep?

When I saw the challenge at Merry Monday this week, I was
instantly intrigued. Neon colors for Christmas? Why not!


I absolutely love the way the neon inks look on this card! This is not
something I would have ever thought of doing on my own.  Thank you Kristie
for choosing neon for the challenge and taking me on another card adventure!



I am also entering this in the Clean and Simple challenge over at

supplies:
all from Stampin' Up! unless noted
card stock: whisper white
stamps sets: Joyful Christmas, Linear Baubles (Stamp-it Australia)
ink: memento tuxedo black
Tim Holtz distress ink: picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade
    and frayed burlap

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
