Happy Birthday Banner Card

I have this super card to share today.  I love metallic paper, but it sure is a bugger to photograph.
The card base is a card feature from Life's a Party (in fact all cuts are from Life's a Party) sized at 5". I cut some circles at 4 3/4" and 4 1/2" too. The red star paper is from KI Memories "Party" pack.

See how well the paper shines! :) I love it in person, but my flash hates it!  The banner is cut at 1 1/2" tall.  The little stars at 3/4" also in the metallic paper. 

I popped the banner up on pop dots and every other star is mounted on a second layer of pop dots, giving this card TONS of dimension. I added some little silver brads to the banner to go along with the metallic feel of this card.

The "happy birthday" is cut at 1 1/2" and again, I popped every other letter up on pop dots.

Lastly, I added some extra stars to the card and white gel pen stitching. Love it!
