CAS Mix Up - January 2019 - Bokeh

Happy New Year!
It's time for a new Challenge at CAS Mix Up, Nancy has chosen Bokeh + Stamping + Your Choice for the Month of January.  There are some inspiration video's on the CAS blog, you can check them out here.
I used Pink and Purple Water Colour Paints for my Watercoloured Background.  I die cut the die three times layering it for more dimension.  The Sentiment is Silver embossed.  I finished off the inside with a bit of Bokeh Background and part of the die cut.

  7. What a pretty Bokeh card, Susan! The lovely scene somehow reminds me of Paris! (although I've never been there)
    I love the colors you chose - purple, pink, white, and silver. The layers of the die-cut definitely adds dimension and very effective. Your photo styling is beautiful too. Happy New Year! :-)
