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.

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.
