Don't be afraid to sparkle

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I hope you are staying safe and healthy. The last two weeks have been pretty hectic for me and I barely had any time for crafting. However, collecting minutes and staying up late(r) I still managed to finish the card I am about to show you. 

This card is pretty simple (especially for me lol), but I am still happy with how it turned out, even though I didn't use any design paper or embellishments (shocking, I know - I can't even believe it myself lol). Originally I wanted to use gold glitter paper, but I didn't have any at home and I didn't have time to go to the store and buy some. So I used some of that beautiful gold washi tape to create the background and some corrugated cardstock to give the card some dimension. I really wanted to use the "Don't be afraid to sparkle" stamp from Paperbabe stamps, but I didn't want to just stamp it. For some reason I was determined to emboss the sentiment with gold embossing powder. Well, my embossing pad's days are counted, but somehow I still managed to get it to work just enough to emboss the sentiment and some stars, which are also a Paperbabe stamp. After the stars were embossed I cut them out with my scissors. From a gold cardstock I cut a star and embossed it with polka dot embossing folder. I glued that on a piece of cardstock and after that put it on a card. And that's it. It really was that simple.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
