Bokeh Birthday

Happy New Year everyone!   I just checked out the January CAS Mix Up Challenge and it's BOKEH!
I've never done Bokeh before and it looked so fun - I just had to join in.  You may know that I was on the CAS Mix Up team -  but for 2019 I've moved to the NEW Stencil Challenge team
 (see more about that below!)
So I checked out the linked videos over at CAS Mix Up and got to work.
I sponged a 4"x 5 1/4" panel of Bristol Smooth White with Twisted Cintron and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks and let it dry.  Then I cut my own circles stencil using a piece of acetate and different size circle dies.  I sponged over the circles in a random pattern with Glacier White Pigment Ink, overlapping some and inking some more heavily so they look like they are closer.  
I cut my panel in two so I was able to make two cards.

So I used Bokeh, stamping, die cuts and sequins.
The scallop border is from PTI, the die cut birthday is from WPlus9, the HAPPY above is from PTI and the happy below is from a Dec Freebie set from PTI.

You'll find the CAS Mix Up Challenge here.

And I'd love for you to check out the new CAS Stencil challenge Loll is launching on Jan 4th!  You will find the CAS Stencil Challenge here.  A great opportunity to use all those stencils laying around in your craft room!!  Hope to see you there!
