Sparkle like you-know-who

OK, this is NOT a post about weddings, Royal or otherwise, but whoever is getting married, or celebrating anything else tomorrow, I wish you the most sparklingly happy day.

and because the sparkle doesn't show up in the main pic, here's a close up

The background is one of several made using the same technique that I found lurking in my UFO box. It's a couple of years since I made it and I can't remember exactly how I did it (although I'm sure one of you will be able to remind me) but it involved waxed paper, an embossing folder and a hot iron. At the time I tried stamping on it with very limited success, but thanks to the Misti I was able to stamp everything several times over  to get decent ink coverage.

The border is an Indigo Blu stamp and everything else from a magazine freebie set - I think it was with the now-defunct Quick Cards Made Easy. Obviously a sentiment like that needs added sparkle, which I added with Stickles.

I think this would be a perfect card for a little girl.

I am sharing it with
