I have seen so many cards using pigment ink to create Bokeh technique cards.  I also found that you can use your regular dye inks and the end of a pencil (the eraser) to get the Bokeh effect (thanks to the tutorial at splitcoaststampers.com).   I used the sketch from the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog for this card.   

CTMH also just came out with a new embossing folder - Confetti - that coordinates so well with the Bokeh effect on this card.  (I prefer to call the folder "cascading dots", so have to be sure I share with you the real name!)
Here's a list of the materials I used to create this card.  All are from Close to My Heart.  If you are interested in any of the product I used, check out my CTMH website.
