Bokeh and stitching

Here is another one, this one was made a long time back, probably more than a week or 10 days, was just waiting to post.
I had used only HLS stamps here to create the bokeh effect. I used inks from Stamping up - coastal cabana, and blushing bride..also Hero Arts Ombre ink pad.
Once done with the bokeh, I went on to stamp the circle outlines, and doodled the stem and leaves...added some stitches to it in white. The sentiment is from HLS as well. Used foam adhesive to ad the front panel.

Adding this to:

HLS Anything goes
I am having fun with these mix mash stamps.
