Here's my adaptation of Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #55. The sketch provided a great opportunity to use up some of my precious Bittersweet scraps.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Cocoa cardstock; Basic Grey Bittersweet 6x6-inch paper packet; Cocoa ink pad; Impression Obsession Sentiments II stamp set; Sparkles; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Antiqued Copper Itty Bitty Brads; Cuttlebug w/Butterfly Combo and Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Stampin' Up Word Window punch; Piercing tool.

Looking at the clock, I guess I'd best go get dressed for our night out - a 60th birthday party for Marv's cousin. It's being held in a small town about 40 miles from here, and Marv's mom is riding with us, so she doesn't have to drive home after dark - a good thing considering in that neck of the woods (literally) there are at least 20 times as many deer on the roads as there are cars. I'm hoping we're not out too late. I hope you're having a wonderful day, either someone you love doing what you love. Thanks for stopping by. If I'm lucky, I might get to check back later. 'Til whenever, take care!

Love this card! (I think I should just copy and paste that on all your stuff, since I feel like I repeat myself here) You are so GOOD at using the Bittersweet paper! And that butterfly looks fantastic.

Hope you had fun at your party and no deer jumped in front of the car!
