Joyful Christmas Bokeh Card

I was inspired by a great sketch for our local stamp club to create this Christmas card using the Bokeh technique. Here is a link to photography showing the bokeh effect. This look is being used as an inspiration for card making. I used various sizes of daubers in light colors, one round stamp and some sequins. Then I added the "joyful" words cut out with a Paper Smooches die.

I am entering this card in the Christmas Joy challenge at Creative Card Crew and the Anything Goes challenge at Party Time Tuesday.
