Layout and Fall card both using Heritage Tree

The next project I completed today was a two page layout.  I wanted to enter the BBTB2 challenge this week which was to use the curly tree from the Heritage cart. I also wanted to enter the Getting Cricky with K Andrews challenge which was to make a "winged" project.  I love this tree and decided to use it for a layout and add the pictures from my granddaughter's baby dedication at church.   I loved the idea of making a butterfly tree to represent  our faith in God and the miracle of the gift of a baby.  I used stamped verses from my new Pink by Design stamps and added several different kinds of butterflies.  I used two MS punches and then these adorable little metal double layered butterflies I got at a museum when we went to see the Butterfly Exhibit.  So this is my entry for the two challenges.
This is the second page to go with the above layout.  I added more butterflies, verses and The words Dream Big from Graphically Speaking.  (Sorry I goofed and left the sticky on this one when I took pic).  I actually did double of this layout one for me and one for daughter with different background paper.
So when I finished the layout pages I started working on the "Fall Colors" challenge for Die Cuttin Divas .  I started with my Brocade Window Cuttlebug folder which I love.  I used my new DCWV Fall Stack leaf paper underneath.  The card  is gold cardstock.  I then cut out another curly tree from Heritage to place in the window.  It is pop dotted.  The leaves are cut using a MS corner leaf punch I bought last year.  The leaves are cut from glitter scraps.  I also added one of each color leaf to the corner and on the right bottom.  The butterfly, sunflower and gourd are buttons I bought last year and I cut the shanks off.  
Not sure what I will use this card for so I put leaves and a some scraps inside to store until I decide what I want on the inside.

    This is so incredibly beautiful that I immediately got on ebay to try to purchase that cartridge. I've been wanting it for a while, but after seeing this, I had to have it! You did an amazing job with those butterflies too! Love it!
