Ribbon and shimmer

I really worked hard on this card but am not at all pleased with the final results. Too busy perhaps? I was aiming at making a card with glitter and ribbon that could also be used as a "guy" card:

First I took some gray card stock and made repeated stripes across it of various thicknesses, using ribbon, glitter, small beads, atamps and embossing powder to make my own background paper.

Next I took a Sizzix Star die cut as well as a Simon Says stamps star and hearts die strip to make stars from this paper. I repeated this step with plain orange cardstock to make one large star.

I made two stripes of glitter across the front of the card.

I then  completely covered the back of the card with a stamped stars -  from the Hero Arts "Operation write home" clear stamp set.

I took the larger star made from the glitter/ribbon paper, backed it with the orange star and glued it on the front of the card, and placed some of the smaller die cut stars on front of it. Afterwards, i stamped more stars onto the card front (one was double stamped). I placed some of the smaller die cut stars on top of them or placed them on their own. Lastly I stamped the sentiment onto lighter gray card stock and placed it behind the largest star. I traced over the sentiment with a clear Wink of Stella brush.

Some of the smaller stars from the Simon Says set were glued onto the stamped stars or placed on their own. Finally, lots of Glossy Accents to create a 3D effect to the glittered stripes.
