You make my day BRIGHTER!

HELLOOO! I'm back to share with you my submission for the LSC - Make your own Pattern Paper and the YCU Challenge - Hot Trends.  It feels like forever since I play in the Lawnscaping Challenge!!  I was honored however to be a guest designer in last week's challenge!! I will treasure that forever!! This is the first time that I have submitted for the YCU challenge.  Today's card you sure can't miss for sure!! Neon is a trend that is coming back!! I feel like the 80's child I was all over again!!  Check it out!

I started out by creating a neon background with my deco tape, not washi tape.  I still would like to have some neon washi tape, because it is easier to work with.  I need to use this tape up though.  The stamps I used was Lawn Fawn's How Delightful, one of a couple of Lawn Fawn sets I hadn't used yet.  I heat embossed the "shine" images in white - stamped out the light bulb in Versa Fine black ink, and the lamp shade "pull" in Rose Bud Memento Ink.  This set has a sentiment "You make my day brighter" but I wanted the sentiment to bigger- so I recreated it with Harold's ABC's and some white sticker letters.  

Here is another look at my card:

I love these challenges, because I love Lawn Fawn and these bright colors!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
