So Trendy

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is "so trendy." Use chevrons, hexagons, or neons. I used the SB "So Trendy" M-bossabilities folder to create the hot pink and black backgrounds for this, using chevrons and hexagons. This embossing folder has both designs - just flip it to use both patterns. Love that! The larger medallion was done with a SB Lotus die, while the smaller one was done with a Simon Says Stamp Delicate Dahlia die. I cut each die in pink, orange, yellow and black, and interchanged all the pieces to add a splash of interesting color. The colors aren't really neon, but they're definitely festive and bright! The sentiment was done with 2 SU! punches and I added some tiny black pearls, along with a small yellow brad for the center of the small medallion.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic Monday!

Totally cool and fabulous, Carol. I've been seeing hexagons around more and more. I'll have to get on the bandwagon. :-) Your colors are just fantastic...great job!

Love the textures, but sure did you have to go full out and get all three?? {LOL} I consider that background pink darn near neon! Hope that you're feeling ok after all the weekend tree work!

Pink and black are always a great combo and with the yellow it just cranks it up a notch. Wonderful card. I, too, love the M-Bossabilities. I have the same one, but need to invest in more. Have a wonderful day.
