grateful beyond glitter

i made a very thankful card today, and i love it! i decided i wanted to use gold, which i usually shy away from...but as you'll see, i embraced it whole heartedly for this card! and turns out, i love pink and gold together! 

so i made this card for the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch! love that sketch! and i came up with the idea of flipping it and making those hanging banners speech bubbles instead! 

here's what i mean:
(warning - it's shiny, it's bright, it's glittery)

i used the hello and good times stamp sets for this card, from mama elephant.i heat embossed (in gold!) the speech bubbles onto a soft, pale pink paper, and popped one up for dimension. then i layered some pink glitter ribbon and gold glitter tape to add some extra shine. 

the little potty people were stamped and then glittered to match the pink ribbon tape. lastly, i added some vairous sizes of wood veneeer stars to bring the card back down to earth. :) 

as you can imagine, it was sort of difficult to capture the true shininess and glittery goodness of this card. but that's ok! in person, it's super fun! 
so that's it!
