Congratulations card

Hello. This is my second post for the day. It happens when you have a little one to tend to and you don't find time for blogging. And when you do, you post all your cards at once :D
Ok, so this is another card I made for Avery Elle's current challenge, which is to incorporate stripes in the card. This is what I came up with. I have used the Petals and Stems stamp set for this card too, but this time I thought of using the smaller flowers with stems.

 A close-up of the card...

Don't those glitter stripes look gorgeous.... yes I used glitter here. No embossing.... This is how I made the glittery stripes. I used the super tacky red tape (my current fav adhesive). Stuck it in stripes on both ends of the card.

Peeled off the backing and then generously covered it with white pixie dust glitter.

Tap off the excess and there you go.....It looks really gorgeous in real!! I got this tip from my crafter friend Dr. Sonia. She has many more ideas here on how to use the super tacky red tape.
