Your Next Stamp Colour Challenge # 14



 
My card was created for Color Challenge #14 on the Your Next Stamp blog.  
I created the background with inks and them used a self made circle template to get all the circles. The white circles were created using the Big splats stamp. This gives the Bokeh effect.
I have used several stamps on this card.
They were Cupcake Cutie Fiona, Big splats and Celebration circles.
I also used the Frame Stitch die and have to say I just love it.
You can check out all of these products at Your Next Stamp.  HERE
