Today there's a very trendy challenge going on at Young Crafters Unite:

Yep- hot trends.  I decided to incorporate a few trends on my card: woodgrain, chevron, and neon:

The fuchsia, green, and yellow on the card are all neon- it was difficult to capture its vibrancy on camera.

My focal point (the flower) is the only thing that is neon, and it is the only thing that is 3D on the card, which draws your attention right towards it (even though the sentiment takes up more space, I find the flower is still the focus).  Because of this, I'm linking this card to the Moxie Fab World "Focal Point Challenge."

You may now get even more inspiration:


  1. You mean I get to pick what I think is trendy? Love the combo of the woodgrain and the neon. And I seriously LOVED your post about the crafty dash... oh my goodness.

  2. wow Jennifer...that flower is so lovely and stunning! Have a great day :)

  3. Such a cool card! I love the neon accents, and you're right my eye went right to it. This card has such great energy and movement, love it! Thanks for your comment on my blog too and for entering my giveaway! I'm so glad you stopped by! :)

  4. Love the woodgrain chevron and that flower is gorgeous!! Very vibrant!

  5. Love the bits of neon. Your flower just pops off your card!

  6. Jen, I really like it....a LOT! That strip of neon is so unexpected, but looks like it was made for the card. I love that woodgrain chevron paper...really cool! And that paper flower? Oh yes, I can see why you wouldn't want to stick that in an envelope. Whoever is hand delivered this card will love it to pieces :)

  7. {{sigh}}

  8. THis is one of my favorite cards of yours. I love every aspect of it...and that it is still classic Jen.
