Merry Monday #129 - Merry and Bright

Hello Friends,
Welcome to this weeks Merry Monday Challenge.  Kristie is challenging us to use Neon Colours. So not having much in my stash that would fit the challenge I went with a piece of Fluro card and the brightest green I could find that matched my Designer Paper.  I think my card looks a bit Retro or Seventies style, especially seeing that the DSP has a furry element on some of the purple circles.  I cut out the Merry die cut and backed it with the pink card and then added all the other elements you can see.  The pearls were coloured with a Copic Marker. 

Stamps: S/U's Ornamental Pine
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Fluro Pink Card, Kaisercraft La Di Da Collection DSP
Ink: Green Galore, V17 Amethyst Copic
Finishing Touches: Pearls
Cool Tools: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Big Shot, Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Corner Rounder Punch, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals 
Thanks for popping in today. Happy Stamping!
