Happy Saturday Everyone!! The weekend is here! It looks like the weather is going to be nice here and I have no plans so it should be relaxing. Just what I need!!
Today it is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge!

This week the challenge team is challenging you to create a Card or gift with a sentiment as the focal point!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, May 27 to Mr. Linky on the ODBD blog here.. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.
If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC14. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:
For my creation I used the Midnight Madness Sketch # 54. I had used this sketch one time earlier this week but I thought it was perfect with a sentiment rather than and image....less busy.

The butterflies are all glittered but you may have to click on the image to see it.

Paper: SEI Bisette, Chocolate chip and white
