One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #6 - Bokeh Christmas

Hi there,
It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at One Layer Christmas Cards. The challenge is always Anything Goes with an optional Twist which is to use Circles on your cards.  I decided to use the Bokeh technique that's very popular at the moment and a fun way to add Circles. I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks on my card to begin with and when they where dry I stamped my sentiment and added the circles using a stencil I made with some Spellbinder Nestability Circle dies.


Stamps: Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings, Tim Holtz - Holiday Joy
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Festive Berries, Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold, Tuxedo Black, Stazon Opaque Re-Inker
Cool Tools: Sponges, Sponge Dauber, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Handmade Circle Stencil
Hope you will join the Design Team for this challenge, can't wait to see what you create.
Thanks for dropping by.
