Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges - Challenge#1

Back again with my second post for today and the news that I have joined the DT of  Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges.  The challenge blog has been in hiatus since last year having a bit of an overhaul and changing to a monthly challenge. There are quite a few of the DT team who stayed on and there are 10 newbies starting fresh for the first challenge of the year. Our sponsors for the challenge are Smeared Ink (who have now closed) Imagine That and Doodle Pantry
The theme for the challenge is "Something New" - so a new product or try a new technique etc. Please make sure you add what you are doing or using as your "New" to your blog post.
Here is my project. My "New" thing is making a gift box with notelets and using the "Bokeh" technique on my little cards.
A couple of photos to show the notelet cards and the little box in a closer view.

SU Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the box, cardbases and punched circle
White cardstock from stash for sentiment, image and card mattes
DP was a scrap from SU designer paper
Image and sentiment (on box) are from Doodle PantryBalloon Ants
Sentiments on cards from various stamp sets
I used several SU inkpads to make the Bokeh effect on the notelets
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
Circle punches
D/S tape roller and Foam Dots

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you joining in the fun of our first challenge for the year. Don't forget you have a whole month to get crafty and enter.
Take Care,
Hugs, Sandy
