House of Cards May Technique

Hello Everybody!

Is everyone else in a flurry like myself?  LOL!  So many things to do before the new month starts-and you can't stop time.  I tried ;)

There is a new challenge at House of Cards.  This month the challenge is to use the Bokeh technique.

Here is my card:

For me sometimes it's easier to see a technique on YouTube.  This is the video I used to create the Bokeh effect.  I liked the way she decorated the corner so I think I cased her card (subconsciously).  Thank you Diane! :)

The swirl is from my Silhouette machine (bought from the store) and the pink shape is a mover and shaker by Tim Holtz.  I used a Fiskar border bunch along the side.  

These are the colors I used for the background:

This is such a fun technique!  We can't wait to see what you make!  

Until next time my friends...yay for circle stencils! :)
