...I love wearing it, decorating with it, seeing it - but I always have trouble making cards with it. A card for this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS - here's the bit I was inspired by...

...and also for this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Polka Dot challenge and my friend Virginia's rainbow challenge. :)
 Here's that neon, that worked perfectly for this birthday/graduation card...

Some Glossy Accents on the shell, as well as the hearts...

I'm so happy I finally caved in and bought the Nestabilities circle dies when they were on clearance - such a simple shape, but so hard to get perfect by hand! Plus you have the option of window cards. ;)

Finally, thank you SO much for your kind words on my last post! I had been in a mojo rut when I made that last card and wasn't too impressed by it - I'm so glad you liked it though! I will also make the video on my craft corner as soon as I have the chance. :)
Have a blessed day!
