Bokeh Birthday


I am here with a super quick card that I put together with my Bokeh Builder stencil.  I love the bokeh effect on cards and think that it creates a really soft and dreamy look that does not detract from the focal image.  When I saw that the theme for the new challenge over at Less is More is spots AND one layer, I decided that this was the way to go....

I simply inked through the various sized circles in light distress inks and stamped the Altenew birthday sentiment over the top.  

I shall also link up at Seize the Birthday for the Anything Goes as my design is too CAS to cover the card :)  

This is a very simple stencil but it makes quick bokeh effect designs really easy.  The circles are spread far enough apart that you can ink through without worrying about needing to mask off the other apertures.

It is available to buy at

Thanks for stopping by!
