Isn't that a pretty sounding title?  A little unimaginative, on my part, but, hey, I do struggle with post titles!

I'd like to share with you today a card I made for my niece's birthday.  My lovely friend Leanne, who does not have a blog, but who makes the most beautiful cards, inspired me to make this one.  She 'enabled' me to buy the embossing folder that created that oh-so-pretty background, and I borrowed her idea of adding some butterflies stamped (with the Butterfly Prints stamp set) and punched out.  Thanks Leanne!  My card is much simpler than the one I 'cased', but I think it's a happy card; hope that niece of mine likes it!
