Flourescent Colors of Spring

Hello and a very happy Sunday to everyone! In spite of my mentioning to a few folks that the clocks needed to be turned ahead last night, guess who forgot to do her own?! LOL Life is great :)
Here is this week's OWH Stars and Stamps sketch for challenge #112.
And here is the spring-like card I made with it. I spotted another challenge called the CR84FN50 color challenge to use pink, orange & yellow, so I thought I'd combine both challenges into one card.  My flourescent copics just never see enough love, so I pulled them out and colored this embossed panel and added some black mini brads. I've had this piece of flourescent orangy-pink cardstock for a long time, and decided to pair it up with these flowers. Bright is the keyword for today :)
I used a square lattice ef, a SNSS sentiment, a SU! large oval punch, and an EK punch for the sentiment panel. The flowers were embossed with a CB ef.
Mr Linky seems to be on vacation all over blogland this morning, so I'll get this card linked up to the proper challenges as soon as the links become available.
Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Carol, I love it. Those florescent markers look so beautiful paired with your mini brads. Oh, I never thought to emboss the sentiment die piece either. Thanks for a fabulous idea. Very pretty card all around.

Wow! Carol, this card is so cool! I love those flowers - I wish my hand was steady enough to outline that embossed panel. It just looks awesome! I also like the ef you chose to go with this card and the die for the sentiment. This card just works on every level, great job!

The embossing looks great, always adds such a pretty texture to your cards. I also love the color combo and how very pretty your card turned out!

Beautiful job as always, Carol! I think keeping lots of white on the card makes the neons shine without letting them overwhelm. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
