Star card

Afternoon all. I guess I am more of a afternoon post on my blog kind of gal unless I preset them. I made this card for Manly Monday and was shot down by the man in the house that anything with glitter on it is not manly. Whatever. It's blue and green and has stars on it. I thought that would be OK for a boy but apparently not. So here's my card and you be the judge:
The star stickers are by EK Success and oval sticker by Creative Memories. Star background stamp by Studio G, Star stamp that is an outline is by The Paper Studio and sentiment by Hero Arts. White craft ink by Stampin' Up, all green ink is by Memento and sentiment ink by Versa Mark with embossing powder clear (on background) and white by Stampendous. Patterned paper is an oldie by MME, green paper is unknown, pretty blue paper is by Core'dinations and white paper and card base are by Recollections. I used the Cricut by Provo Craft to cut out the scallop oval and a star, Marvy heat gun to heat emboss, Quickutz star die cut for one of the stars and Stampin' Up border punch.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Wee Memories (SAT#49)-Anything goes
Marks finest papers(SAT#48)-embossing with something on the card popped up (two stars have foam squares under them and the heat ambossing background and sentiment)
Gingerloft(SUN)-die cuts (QK star) or punches (border punch)
Let's Ink it Up(FR#14)-die cuts or punches (see above)
Corrosive Challenge(SUN#109)
There She goes(MON#100)-No markers
Squigglefly(M#91) Make your own patterned paper (background paper is embossed stamps)

Flourishes(Tu#111)-Use other stamps
The Paper Variety(W)-1-2-3 challenge (1-border punch, 2-star stickers and 3-words in my sentiment)
Stamp Royality(W#65)-Heat embossing
Creative Card Crew(W)-For a child
Cooking it Up with Katie(W#55)-Sparkle and shine (the blue paper is glittery)
