Bokeh Effect Thank You Card

Happy New Year everyone! Today I am making a bokeh effect thank you card for two challenges. The first challenge is Runway Inspired Challenge - ric#74 Escada. Below are the challenge photos:

The second challenge is CAS(E) this Sketch #104. Below is the challenge photo:

I decided to make a bokeh effect thank you card. First, I applied yellow and orange watercolors on the watercolor paper. 

Once the watercolor dry, I used a dabber and dabbed white pigment ink with circle stencils to make the bokeh effect. Then, I cut a "thanks" greeting die and put white enamel accents onto the die word to make it dimensional. Cut a piece of curve stitched die and stamp "for everything" on it. Attached the orange stripe and curve stitched piece under "thanks" die. Finish the card by glued some sequins on the card. Below is the finished card:

Here is a closer look of the "thanks" die:

Cardstock: watercolor paper, PTI

Die: Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn
Others: ZIG Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, Ranger white enamel accents, sequins
