My Dad's Birthday

My dad's birthday was a couple of weeks ago.  We went to dinner with my folks at a favorite restaurant.  This is the card we gave him along with a gift card to a bookstore. 

The Designer Series Paper is beautiful and the collage, vintage look is one of my favorites.  And how do you like the watch?  I love how that turned out.

Have a great day!

Bokeh Effect

The challenge over on SCS today is Bokeh Effect.  I used some of the new 2013-2015 In-Colors and love how it turned out.  Bokeh is a photography technique that is a blur or an out of focus area of the image. For a stamper this is an easy thing to accomplish.  Take an image and stamp off.  Just use 3-5 colors and you get a beautiful effect.  Bokeh!  Ha.  Anyway, here is my card.

The new colors used here are Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  They are just lovely.  I used Shimmery White Card Stock, although it is hard to tell in this photo.  Click on the image and you will see a closer view.
