Beautiful Damask Birthday

I've been cleaning off my desktop and clearing out my computer files in preparation for filing our taxes, and I came across this card I made just before going to my StampNation collaboration retreat.  It's one of my favorite cards from 2015, but I don't think I ever got a chance to share it.    I'm not sure if it is the soft way the colors blended in the background, the glittery-ness & sparkle added or the pretty script on the sentiment.  Probably all 3 combined.

Whatever the reason, I love this card, and wanted to share it with  you.  To create the background I sponged on inks starting with yellow and moving on to my pinks.  Then I used a stencil to add a layer of white embossing paste.  Before the paste dried I sprinkled on some glitter and shook off the excess.
