Cucumber Bokeh

I love how this card turned out using the Bokeh technique.  I seldom use the greens in our color palette and when it was finished, I was more than pleased with it.

Bokeh CucumberThe card base is Cucumber Crush with a mat of Whisper White.  Shimmery White was used for the technique piece and I found that when applying the White Craft ink circles it seemed to adhere to the paper much better than when I used Whisper White card stock.  The three shades of green used are Garden Green, Cucumber Crush and Pear Pizzazz.

The flower was punched using three punches: Fun Flower (retiring!), Pansy and Petite Petals using Whisper White card stock and adhered together with Glue Dots and then popped onto the front of the card with a dimensional.  A White Perfect Accent completed the flower and a length of 5/8″ Organza ribbon wrapped around the two top layers and bow completed the card.
