Bokeh Background Birds

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is to say goodbye to the summer by using sunset colours on your card.
I sponged an ombre background from pink through to orange and then yellow, then added a little bit of a bokeh effect over the top in the same colours.
Not having any circle stamps I punched a few different size circles out of craft foam to create my own.

I've seen lots of beautiful cards in blogland using the bokeh effect.  I wanted to get a pattern close to what's seen in a photograph, so added my final layer of stamped circles with white craft ink to get the highlights.

I'm entering this card into
