Bright colors for spring

My CollageATC's Yahoo group's theme for February was neon, I was very happy about that, I'm so sick of drab boring colors. Here are my cards for that swap:
The left one here, the background is a piece of paper I was given that's glued onto some cardstock, then I sewed the yellow trim onto the bottom and added the two lighter colored leaves (those are punches that were in the packet), the darker leaf is a foam punch I had. The flowers are some fake ones from my stash, the pom poms were in the packet and the other flower has a square brad for the center. The card on the right, I glued the orange paper I was given to card stock and then sewed the green trim down, the butterfly, and both flowers are buttons from my stash and the sun is another piece provided.
The card on the left, I glued yellow paper that was provided onto some cardstock and added the palm tree and butterfly sequins from my stash, the orange circle and pink star were provided. For the card on the right, the background paper is some handmade paper I purchased, the orange leaves are from my stash and the green leaves were provided. The dog house is a button from my stash. The green circle, yellow button and sequins were all provided.

The card on the left I sewed the pink, purple, tie dye and green felt that were provided in the packet together and then glued them onto a piece of blue handmade paper that I bought. For the card on the right, I used a piece of paper from my stash and added the blue trim, green tissue paper, yellow foam (that the frog punch is mounted on), the frog punch, the blue/green fabric (that the leaf is mounted on) and the leaf that were all provided.
The card on the right has a background from a paper stack I got for Christmas, the blue foil corners are from Hershey macademia nut kisses (which you can only find in Hawaii), I then added the pink punch, the green and yellow paper, the purple circle (which is under the blue circle), wrapped a green plastic circle in more foil, then added the two buttons on top. The punch, circle paper, purple circle, plastic piece and buttons were all provided. For the card on the right, I used the blue handmade paper that I bought, enhanced the design on it with a white paint marker, added the plastic circle that was provided and then a white button on top.
The card on the left everything I used was provided. I had a hard time getting the squares to stick to the background paper, as the pink stripes have some kind of crystals on them, and finally ended up using glue dots.
The card on the right, the background paper is some handmade paper I bought, then I sewed the green, pink and orange beads onto it.
