Neon Bird Card

Hi everyone

Today I have another neon card to share. I was still inspired by my little neon post it notes, and wanted to do something else with them then I did the first time =) If you haven't seen my first neon card, you can see it here.

This card was also made to enter into the following challenges:

Hero Arts Blog - July challenge

CAS-ual Fridays - CFC62

Moxie Fab World - Birthday Card Challenge

A Blog Named Hero - Inspired by Hero Arts Artists (I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire, specifically this card she made with lots of white space and bright colors)

Here's my card:

I used the neon post its again, but this time I cut them into thinner strips. I adhered them onto some scrap white paper, and diecut a bird image.

For my card, I stamped the sentiment, drew the straight line with a pen, and adhered the diecut bird onto a white piece of cardstock. I then adhered the white piece onto a black cardbase. I just love how the black cardbase behind the white layer makes the sentiment, line and also the colorful bird just pop =)

I am also entering this card into the Keen on Neon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
- Marie

This is so striking! I love how you cut the thin neon strips for the die cut and kept the rest of the design neutral to really make the bird pop. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

What a great idea! The neon bird is small, but definitely brings the "wow" factor.
