Card - Christmas Ornament

I found this tutorial for the Bokeh technique with Stampin Up products. I tried it but I fear I have not be very successful. I made the background with watercolor paper and Brilliant Blue, Pacific Point, Brocade Blue re-inkers and Whisper White craft ink.  I trimmed it to leave a small border of the Not Quite Navy card.  I cut the ornament with the SU Ornament Keepsakes frame-lits. I added a strip of Silver Glimmer paper on the left hand side. I cut a bow with the Tim Holtz Bunny die from the same paper. I cut a narrow strip of the silver paper and mounted it onto a narrow strip of NQN card stock. I mounted a circle of vellum and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch in the centre of the ornament.  I added stitching around the vellum circle with a silver pen and also added markings on the hanger and the bottom tip. I mounted the ornament to the card front wit 3D foam tape.  I added texture to the background with SU Itty Bitty Background stamps in NQN.

I'm submitting the card to the following challenges:
Sparkles Christmas Challenges - Inspiration Photo - blue and silver ornaments.
