Bokah Thank You Card – Fusion Challenge “The Beach House”


fusion 7 31 beach bokah thanks

Today’s card is for the current Fusion Card Challenge July 31st {The Beach House} .

Perfect timing, I just returned from a beach vacation! A “Beach House” theme is right up my alley!

Monday morning, bright and early, I stumbled upon the WPLUS9 Blog post about a bokah technique. I had to try the bokah technique, and I was inspired by the blue and yellow of the Fusion Challenge photo. (Although, with the placement of my sentiment, and the polka dots in the bokah technique, I think I probably get credit for using both the photo and sketch inspiration…)

I did not use a stencil for my polka dots, I used Stampin’ Up!s Simply Circles stamp set (retired). The white dots are fairly subtle straight on, here is a side view:
