A Shaker Card with Bokeh Background

I made this card in response to the current challenge over on Country View Crafts.  I also wanted to use one of my recent Clarity die purchases.
Using egg shaped applicators, add turquoise ink to a piece of Clarity stencil card.
Repeat with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide.
Add Twisted Citron Distress Oxide in the same manner.
Continue with Spiced Marmalade Oxide and finish with a pale blue.

Add further soft focus by pouncing Picket Fence Distress ink over the whole area in the same manner as before.
Cut a piece of black card to 6.5” x 6.5”. Cut the Daisy and Friends Aperture from the centre of the card.
Add a piece of acetate to the back of the aperture ensuring that it is well sealed.
Stamp the mini Happy Birthday (mini word chains 1&2 and 3&4) into the bottom corner with Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Mat the Bokeh panel onto a piece of black card 7.5” x 7.5”.
Add to the front of an 8” x 8”white card blank.
Add foam tape on the back of the die cut panel as shown.
Run an anti-static bag around the inside edges of the foam tape and over the acetate. 
Using the inner circle stencil from Framer Shapes 1 as a guide, add faux stitching round the edge of the aperture with a white gel pen.
Add a little fine clear glitter inside the aperture and lay the card over the top. Flip the card over and adjust the placement as necessary before pressing firmly onto the foam tape to seal.

This is fabulous Sarah, I love how you've created your bokeh background, it goes so well with the silhouette die. Thank you so much for joining in with our challenge at Country View Crafts and have a very happy week, Sue xx
