Neon Colours.....

Here is today's card.....
Vibrant and very Neon....
I was inspired by Curtain Call inspiration Challenge Photo........
I was inspired by the Neon colours and the 'open' metal work on the pineapple.

I die cut the top corner with an 'open' honeycomb die onto white card stock.
I die cut it again onto green neon card and again onto neon felt.
I inlaid some of  card and some of the felt.
I loved how it looked....although inlaid it had texture to it.

I die cut the pink neon flower in felt and inlaid that too.
The line die flower was cut in neon green card and popped on top.
To finish I added the yellow felt flower to the centre and a green dot.
The sentiment was stamped in black archival ink 
and finished with a snippet of the white honey comb die.

 This gave me the inspiration to inlay some of the die pieces with card and felt.
I always think of inlay die cuts being flat, as I had never thought 
to use anything but card for them before.

There was a lot of experimenting with this card 
and lots of neon colours and shapes to use at a later date!
