Sing a little song

Finally Spring looks like it may be just around the corner. The birds are singing their dawn chorus earlier and the daffodils are at last blooming.
It's a great time of year to see brighter colours. Talking of brighter colours this weeks challenge at Stampotique is hosted by the lovely Astrid. You can find Astrid's blog here and she is inviting us to use Neon colours in our creations. Here's what she said:
"At first I was a bit afraid of these intense colours, but after using them I really love them. They give your work such a nice 'pop'. I challenge you to use at least one Neon colour. Can't wait to see your eye popping work!"
When I saw this challenge theme I admit I was petrified. I love bright colours but neon is bright on steroids!
So I slightly wimped out and just used a touch of neon on my home decoration creation. The centre of the flowers are really neon and very bright. I was quite pleased with how they make the flowers pop.
The stamps I used are:
It's a little cute. A little whimsical with a touch of shabby chic . . . now where to hang it?
Don't forget just by entering the challenge you are in with a chance of winning $30 that's £20!!! to spend at the Stampotique Online Store here  
Wishing you a very lovely day. Sam xxx
