I am not a pastel color girl at all. I don't have girls so these are rarely used in my world. I am not even a pink girl myself so thinking outside the box was a must with this one. Once I finished, I realized it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be but I think the stamp set is what helped.
This awesome stamp set is called Bokeh Dots and it was designed by Julie Ebersole and are sold at ellenhutson.com. It's part of a new release that is just amazing in every way. You can check out the entire release HERE. So now back to my card....
I stamped out the bokeh images with So Saffron and Pool Party inks from Stampin Up. I did not have any rhyme or reason for where I placed them. Just kind of went where my eye thought it would look good. Once I was finished with the stamping, I die cut the words Merry Christmas out of Pink Pirouette card stock also from Stampin Up. I used the die set Merry & Bright also from the Essentials by Ellen release.
I glued it on using glossy accents to make sure that it would stick. That stuff is amazing when it comes to getting intricate pieces to stay put. I colored the word with my Wink of Stella glitter pen and added some Sparkling Clear 6mm clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh! No card is EVER complete with out sequins! It's an unwritten rule!
