Incredibly Grateful

Hi!  Just a very quick post to share a card I made for CASE Study Challenge #179.  Danielle Flanders is providing such beautiful inspiration this month, that I had to find a bit of time to play along.
Take a look at her gorgeous card.

I was especially inspired by the bokeh technique she used in the upper left corner of her card.  And, since I STILL hadn't tried the technique...what better time than now.  So I created this.

I love the card.  But.  No matter how I edited these photos, the intensity of the banners colors is so much brighter than IRL.  Actually the colors in the banners are very close to my stamped dots.  Ahhh well.  Anyway, it was fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
