MAWTT Sparkle or Shine!

Don't you just love it when you have the perfect image or sentiment for a challenge?  I did a little happy dance when I saw our new SPARKLE / SHINE challenge for Moving Along With The Times because I immediately knew which image and sentiment I was going to use! There was no alternative!

Image and sentiment from UNITY:  http://www.unitystampco.com/shop/kind-beautiful/
And then as luck would have it I had the perfect sketch to use from Retro Sketches:
 I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper with the same sparkle embossed background DP (my last of the paper pad which was my very first 6x6 paper pad I ever bought! Prima I think).  The word "SPARKLE" and the crown was first coloured with Spectrum Noir and then I covered it with Sakura Stardust pen.

Let's sparkle as the year rushes to an end and join us at MAWTT!
