Glamorous Birthday Balloons Bokeh

Hello Lovelies, 
Today I made this really cute card for Paper Players Challenge #283: CAS Balloons. The inspiration photo was beautiful soft pastel colours, so I used a subtles colour pallet and the Bokeh technique
The stamp set is Tag It and the clour combo is Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, and Gold.

As the Bokeh Technique sponges circles on the background of the card I decided to make the focal image a circle and then pop it up on a pool party circle with paper piercing for more visual interest. At this point the card looked really good, but there was something missing, So I added some Gold Glimmer Washi Tape, and it is just perfect! 
Here is a close-up on the centre focal point of this card.

Here is the Inspiration for this card:
