Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Neon Nicknacks

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

Hello Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Right at Home
Here's my take on the inspiration photo.  That fabulous neon green pineapple caught my eye, so I created a collection of tropical blooms using Right at Home's Abstract Florals stamp set.  I stamped a bunch of different blooms using some of the awesome Radiant Neon inks from IMAGINE Crafts.  Once I settled on an arrangement I liked, I used a combination of regular adhesive and foam tape to put the blooms and leaves in place on a pierced rectangle panel.  I added some white sequins to the leaves as accents.  Their iridescent finish goes nicely with the neon tones.

There was enough room at the bottom of the panel to stamp the "hello friend" sentiment, mixed and matched from different stamps from the Script Greetings set.  The panel was matted on  yellow cardstock, then adhered to a bold berry card base.  I didn't have any real neon cardstock to use, so I had to improvise a bit here!
