Butterfly layout for DCWV and Lasting Memories challenges

Several weeks ago I saw that DCWV was having a layout contest. I had never entered a DCWV contest.  I had really thought the deadline was over since I have been gone for almost two weeks with the arrival of my newest grand daughter.  Well anyway since the contest is still open I knew right away I wanted to use one of my all time favorite stacks by DCWV Mariposa.  ( I actually bought two so I have plenty).  Recently we went to a special summer display of butterflies  and got some great pictures so I knew this would be perfect.  For the layout you were to use this  sketch and of course DCWV paper.  I used both the Mariposa Design stack and matching cardstock stack.   I tried to really take advantage of the beautiful butterflies on the paper and cut them to show them off.  Remember if you click on the pictures they will enlarge.  
Here is page 1.

I also used MS punches for the butterfly border and the smaller butterflies to give added dimension.  I am also entering this in a new challenge I found called Lasting Memories.  This week their challenge for your layout was It's All About the Title.
