My own little corner to create pretties among a house full of little men

Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was a very nice weekend here. I love nice weekends. We got to spend some time with great friends on Saturday. It is so nice to have good friends.
Today I want to show you a card I made for my niece. I am so way late it is pitiful. I hope she will forgive me.
I used a painting that my older sister bought my husband and I a long time ago. It is this picture
It has meaning because when my husband and I met for the first time it was in Las Vegas. We took a trip to the top of the eiffel tower. While up there they were having the grand opening of another casino with fireworks and all. It was just amazing and I believe I knew at that moment that we were going to be together forever.
The base of the card is summer sunrise stamped in versamark using polka dot basics. I used a label Nine nestability and cut one mat in harvest gold and the other in lemon tart. The butterfly is a sticker I bought a while back.
The bottom is a strip of simply chartruese punched with a fiskars border punch and wrapped with sweet blush ribbon. I then tied 2 harvest gold buttons to the ribbon using some rope.
I hope she enjoys this card. Now I just need to get her a present and put them in the mail.
