Niece's birthday

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.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
