My Creative Time Challenge

There is a fun challenge at My Creative Time.  For the challenge you can use a photo, color inspiration, a sketch or all 3.  I decided to go with the colors and sketch.  Here is a card I came up with for the challenge.

I have been wanting to use the Bokeh technique after seeing so many beautiful cards made by the design team at My Creative Time.  I used water colors in purple, yellow and orange.  After letting it dry I used Stampin' Up Whisper White Pigment Ink and a circle stencil I made using MCT dies to get the Bokeh look.  I cut an oval in vellum and then cut the Happy B-Day in black fun foam.  After the sentiment was in place I used Wink of Stella on it.  I cut a border strip using the Fun Stitched Edges.  The scallop edge looks like beads the way I cut it.  I added some clear sequins.

Here is a picture of the inside of the card.  I used foil cardstock for the balloons and tied them with Sulky Holoshimmer.  I also used the Fun Stitched Edges Scallop Die to make like a swag banner.  I then used Celebrate Good Times and It's All About You stamp sets, and stamped the sentiments to finish the inside of the card.  The following is a list of products I used.
