Stretch your Stamps 2 OCC - Homework Day 2

I've had a very busy day today. I made this card this morning and then took my niece (from the UK) shopping at Chadstone , our biggest shopping centre. I bought lots of things, including some crafty stuff and then when I arrived there were 3 parcels at the door! One of those parcels was from Ellen Hutson and another one from Winnie & Walter.  I think I'm going to have some fun!

This card is inspired by Jennifer McGuire's video on Day 2 of the OCC Stretch your Stamps 2, using a background stamp and Perfect Pearls. I actually used Pearl-ex powder. It's a duo colour, which means you can see different colours in different light.

The background stamp is from Hero Arts and I've also stamped the Friendship script on the backing card inside the butterfly window.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. 
I'm entering this in the Simon Wednesday Challenge - the theme is Anything Goes.

ETA: I am entering this card in the Simon Wednesday Challenge,
 because the theme is Make it Sparkle. This card sparkles with Pearl ex and sequins.
