Scrap Africa Challenge #59...

Well hello again and welcome back. Today I want to share with you the lovely Mood Board for you try your hand at over at SCRAP AFRICA.  Now I don't usually work with these colours very well, but this mood board is so soft and feminine I new exactly what I wanted to do with it when I saw it.

I decided to make a card using the Bokeh technique taught to me by the lovely Lizzy Hill. I was lucky enough to finally meet Lizzy in real life recently and spent a few days in a scrapping frenzy with her. Since then, I've been wanting to have another go at this technique using a different colour theme. Here is my inspo for this Challenge:

These colours lend themselves so well for Bokeh. I then added some die cut leaves and sentiment and a few flowers and silver ribbon. Don't forget you can take your inspiration from anything on this Mood Board, not just the colours if you don't want. Easy Peasy! :D

Go check out the Design Team's creations and we have some great Guest Designers as well. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations and thanks for dropping by!
