Although lots of supplies were used, the card was pretty simple to put together. Although the picture doesn't show it really well, the silver balloons are embossed with silver embossing powder and they have a great shine to them. The red balloons are embossed with Real Red Glitter Embossing powder, and they really sparkly nicely. The banner is also embosssed with silver embossing powder. Of course, the most sparkle comes from the silver glitter washi tape alongthe sides of the card.
