52{Christmas} Card Throwdown - Theme Challenge #10 {Fairy Lights}

Hello and Happy Saturday to all of you!! Today's challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a Theme Challenge (see below)
Oh goodness what a fun theme - as usual so many possibilities to be explored and created! Here's what I came up with for your inspiration this week:
I decided it might be fun to go completely non-traditional in my color choice this week.  I've been seeing a lot about neon lately as a popular trend so I thought I'd give that a go.  I first colored my images with Copic markers and then added a drop of Crystal Effects to each little light to give it some shine and depth (it doesn't show up nearly as well in the photo as it does in real life ). I love their happy little faces :o)  way too cute. 
I encourage you to pop on over to our challenge site at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and see the other fabulous creations our DT members have come up with for this theme.  Pop on into their blogs and leave them a note when you see what you like.  Hope you'll decide to play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with this week and look forward to visiting your blogs. 

I'm also entering this card in the Christmas Cards All Year Round October Challenge which is to
Create a card using a non traditional image with traditional Christmas colours
