Challenge #22 - Neon Colors!

Hello everyone!  Charissa here!  Hope that you are having a wonderful Holiday Season!  We just had our first snow the other day, and though it didn't stick that always puts me in the holiday mood!

This week I wanted to bring merry and bright to our crafting and one of the trendiest ways to bring bright and vibrant pop to crafting projects is the use of neon colors!  There are neon inks, neon ribbons, neon washi and even neon pens out there.  Now, you may not think you have anything neon you could use, but what about those highlighters most of us have around!  Those are the perfect neon colors!

Projects certainly don't need to be winter or holiday themed to enter, but I want to extend the added challenge to use neon colors for a Winter or Holiday themed project, if you so desire!

Because of the upcoming holidays, we are making this challenge last longer than normal. You will have until January 5th, 2013 to link up your project to this post.  We will bring our next challenge to you on January 7th, 2013!

Here are the projects our wonderful designers have created to get your neon creative juices flowing!

I (Charissa) used the pink, blue, and purple Neon Inks from Hero Arts along with some Kiwi Lane Designs Templates to create this colorful winter themed card.

Kristy created this adorable birthday card using strips of neon and brightly colored washi to really make it pop.  I love how she  made a neon rainbow!

Heather created this darling card with stamps and neon embossing powder.  I adore how detailed and ornate the ornaments are and that they are hung on twine!

Charity created this gorgeous piece with all sorts of neon gorgeousness.  The trees are made using bright, neon ribbons and I love how each of them has a little bit of bling!  So awesome!

Erica created this beautiful holiday card. I love the strong pops of white in the frame, tree and snowflakes.  They really make the bright colors stand out.

Amber created this stunning card with lots of neon.  I just adore those neon pink and orange flowers!  And the neon really pops against the black background.

Remember you have until 11.59 MST on Saturday, January 5th, 2013 to link up for this challenge!  We cannot wait to see all of your neon projects!!

And now....time for the winner from Challenge #21
