CASology CUE Card #52: NEON!

CASology CUE Card: NEON!

This week's CASology CUE was a little bit of a real challenge for me.
I did do another card that is cutesy and fun, however, I 
really wanted to do a punchy one layer CAS card!

I purchased this stamp because any time my mom and I would go into any pet store, we always are drawn to the vibrant glowing colors of the neon tetras.  
That is it!  
Hold on - PERFECT for the NEON Cue!

I just love creating movement and depth in my cards.  
Sometimes I achieve this and don't really realize it.  
That is what I like to call a  
"Happy Accident".

 Don't be afraid to experiment, color only a portion of a stamped image,
 or make it imperfect by choice.  Make it uniquely yours.
It may just surprise you!

Kimberly, I totally love looking at the neon tetras in the et store! My kids have fish (no furry animals in this house full of asthmatics!), and your card is perfect for the cue! Great depth on this one-layer card!
