Anything But Pink?

Today's Holiday Vacation Challenge #9 was to make a card that was Anything But Pink. With Valentine's Day coming around, the shippers have been seeing maybe a little too much.  While my card is not Valentine's themed, it's also not pink!
Fun right?  This card was a headache!! I think I cut up 3 patterned paper before deciding not to use any at all!  For those of you with amazing eye site you may have noticed my wet glossy accents on the brads.  They were glitter brads and I wanted to make them safe to ship to our Heroes.  I used the glossy accents and then let them dry...but not long enough!  So I had to add more glossy accents to fix my smudges.  I used a metallic silver pen to color the stars on the Verve sentiment and then added some stickles!  The ribbon is from SU as well as the die.  It's actually the Top Note Die but with a little playing around!

I hope you've enjoyed!  Have a great New Years!!
