I spy a butterfly, can you?

Annabelle Stamps November Challenge Theme is 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas'.   They have several freebies available to use (although not required) for their challenges.  I didn't want to use the cute pile of packages because my friend Kitty used them on her card.  Instead, I decided to resize the butterfly, then stack several of them in a pyramid shape before printing.  After printing I cut the pyramid into this Christmas Tree: 

(The sentiment is also a digi from Annabelle Stamps. Self-adhesive Shimmer Trim is CTMH.)
Here are the challenges for which I've created this card:
