Double D Challenge - Neons / Brights

Hello Friends!
Today I'm playing with paint and makin' it glow!  LOL!!

Team Diane is hosting the new challenge today
at the Double D Challenge Blog with a theme of NEONS / BRIGHTS
here's the mood board to help get you started . . .

You would think in all the papers, etc. I have in my crafting cave
I would have something that fit this theme but NO ... so I had to get creative!  LOL!
Here's what I came up with . . .

I created my own background paper with bright paints and a sponge brush.
I also sponge brushed a panel with blue and a panel with pink to die cut my sentiment from.
How do you like my bubble wrap corners?  
Aren't I getting 'artsy' ... lol!

A few iridescent sequins and yellow Nuvo crystal drops
and my card to ready to hit the birthday party!!
