CHNC challenge 238: spots and/or stripes

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 238: spots and/or stripes. I've used some lovely digital bokeh paper kindly supplied by one of our sponsors this week, Stamp your life. The lovely reindeer is 'snowflake reindeer silhouette' by Bugaboo Stamps. The stripes and other elements were achieved with playing around with various digital designs.

I thought the bokeh effect would make a change to the more normal regular spots or dots.

This is also for:
