A Bokeh Christmas card!

Hi!  I'm playing along in 2 challenges with today's card.  I had an idea to use gold ink with the bokeh technique and these two challenges were just what I needed, to get this card going.

CAS(E) this sketch #99 - This sketch was created by my friend Michelle (we served on the Dynamic Duos DT together!)
Virginia's View Challenge #9 - All Things Metallic

Here's my take on the two challenges.

Ohhhhh.   I love Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  A. Lot.
So, I had a lot of fun with this card.  I used the back side of two button stamps for my bokeh effect.  I stamped off once before stamping these circles with Sahara Sand and crumb cake inks, then with the gold ink.  Before popping that panel onto my card base, I swiped gold ink onto the edge of the card.
That gave me exactly the look I had hoped for.  So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
