Is This Bright Enough?

Dear Ones~
Well, we have mid 70's and sunny here in Northern Michigan today. And it's the day before Easter!! Why are we always compelled to comment on the

Today's offering was made for the Double D Challenge. The challenge this time is to use neon or bright colors. Just look at these tiles!!!! EEK!!! LOVE bright colors!

And here's my card:
Do you think it's bright enough?? I didn't have a thing in the neon color catagory, so I went out to the Wal Mart and picked up a pack of neon card stock. I figured, what the heck, now I'll have it when I want a bright neon color. The background die cut uses a Spellbinders background die called Diagonal Chevron. I cut the die out with 3 other colors besides black and then inlaid the strips into the black die cut. Inlaying is so much's always so amazing how the pieces fit perfectly!! Flowers and leaves are from a Stampin' Up die set called Botanical Builder Frame. I use it a lot. I sponged all the flowers and leaves to make them pop.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White & Black Onyx Card
Neena Astro Brights Card S
Spellbinders Diagonal Chevron Die
Stampin' Up Botanical Builders Dies
GKD Fabulous Flowers Stamp for Greeting
GKD Jelly Bean Green Ink
GKD Passionate Pink Ink
