Neon Brights

I was fortunate enough to visit  Crafty Ribbons HQ last week.  I was like a little girl in a sweet shop on Christmas Day on cloud nine!  (I can't think of any other sayings... I was  h a p p y!)

We had a chat (lovely people) and I had a nose and filled a basket... and another basket.  I came away with lots of pretties. 

Just as they thought I had finished I piped up,
"Have you got anything bright?  You know,  fluoro.  Luminous.  Really ridiculously bright?!"

I think it may be my new thing.  The neon glitter, fluorescent ribbon, must dig out some highlighter pens too.

Anyway Ali pulled out a basket of brights and this is what I came home with...

very difficult to photograph, hard to capture their brightness!

and this is the first project...

...a birthday card for my cousinlet.

I'm going to enter this card in to this challenge:

Lets Craft and Create - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  TTFN!

  3. Great card, love the fluoro ribbons. Thanks for joining in our challenge over at Let's Craft and Create.

  4. Such vibrant colours, great card Laura!

  5. Wow very eye popping neon's, they go really well with the black, bet they look stunning tied together in a double bow. RE your earlier post about glue & glitter. Have you tried 'The Essential Glue Pad' it's like an ink pad but has glue on it, comes with a spare bottle of glue. You do need fine glitter to get the best effect as it is not like using an embossing powder you only get one layer that sticks. Its great for mica powders as well.

  6. Brilliant - such an original design.
