All Is Bright! ~ CCMC374

Hey!  It's Create With Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge time again!  We have a trio of terrific colors for you this week.  Perfect for a monochromatic look, or ombre!

I was trying to go the ombre route and sponged my colors on a piece of whisper white cardstock....lightest to darkest from top to bottom.  I haven't done the fun Bokeh technique for a while either, so I though that in there.  I then stamped the neat cluster of black trees from
 {Wonderland} in the Holiday Catalog.  

I added some White Glitter ribbon, "all is calm sentiment" and Blushing Bride sequin trim, as well as some scattered white sequins in the sky.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Wonderland
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Black, Craft White
Paper: Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder, White
Accessories: White glitter ribbon, Blushing Bride sequin trim, Metallic sequins


  1. This is just lovely Jenny! I would never have chosen these colours for an ombre winter sky but the effect with the bokeh and dark trees is quite stunning. Bravo!

  2. Swoon! That bokeh background is stunning! You've created such a dreamy beautiful landscape with this card. LOVE! :)

  3. Wow! So much fabulous stuff going on here - the ombre, the bokeh, the sparkle! Awesome card!

  4. GORGEOUS!!! Love the bokeh background with a twist of ombre thrown in...and the sequins add the perfect touch of bling! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  5. Love this! The bokeh background is gorgeous but I am really loving the white sequin "snow"!

  6. Very pretty! I have tried this technique many times and have failed at it every time! I need a pro to show me, I guess! This is a beautiful card!

  7. Wow, Jenny, this is just gorgeous! I love the bokeh with these colors... it truly makes a fabulous sky behind the tall pines! And all your embellishments add so much to create a rich and vibrant scene! LOVE!!
